Simple help is available for snoring, chewing, swallowing, and mouth breathing difficulties!
Few people consider how the muscular function of the mouth, facial muscles, and tongue are critical to shaping the oral cavity and defining proper function for swallowing, breathing, speaking, and many other critical life functions. This was all brought to my attention when I met Sandra Coulson https://www.coulsonandassociates.org/] almost 20 years ago. She began her career as a speech therapist and has specialized in Orofacial Myology for decades. Sandra is an accomplished Orofacial Myologist and has helped countless people learn how to use their facial muscles properly and to swallow correctly, often by repeated exercises that they do under her guidance for the tongue and related facial muscles.
Over the years when we have had conversations she has let me know that she has helped numerous individuals (often teens and younger aged individuals) avoid having orthodontic braces by teaching them how to swallow and position their tongues correctly and by doing other proactive facial muscle exercises. By following her careful guidance, the individual stops pushing the tongue on the teeth and moving them out of position.
In our most recent conversation, she let me know that she has empowered many adults of various ages to avoid being tied down to a CPAP machine at night by going through her evaluation and recommended therapy. Would not you rather spend several weeks or a few months in therapy and learn new habits and then be able to avoid using a CPAP machine? One of her recommendations may include a simple tongue positioning appliance that you use to train your tongue “to behave”. I think this is a great advancement and a user-friendly way to provide improved quality of life to countless individuals. I have never heard anyone tell me that they really enjoyed using their CPAP machine! http://breathingdisorderedsleep.com/breathing-disordered-sleep
Please take time to search out her website https://www.coulsonandassociates.org/ and know that she has helped many people of all ages to have normalized function for chewing, swallowing, speaking, and even breathing by instituting the appropriate personalized exercises and treatment procedures that she recommends for them.
