Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy

Orofacial myofunctional therapy involves identifying and eliminating the harmful habits or disorders that involve the muscles of the tongue, cheek, lips and the position of the jaw. Orofacial myofunctional therapy corrects the oral posture of the muscles of the face and can be used to correct the behavior patterns caused by finger-sucking of thumb-sucking.

Craniofacial Orthopedics

Early intervention with craniofacial orthopedics leads to improved treatment outcomes in facial harmony, airway openness and coordination of the bite by changing the shape, size and relationship of the bones in the jaw and face. Dr. Calkins has extensive knowledge of craniofacial growth—essential to successful treatment.
