Cosmetic dentistry works in conjunction with general dentistry to ensure the overall health and beauty of your mouth.
The appearance of your teeth should reflect your excellent dental health. Otherwise, neither you nor the world will know that your teeth are healthy and strong. An aesthetically pleasing mouth heightens your self-esteem, brightens your face, and betters your presentation in both social and professional interactions.

Myofunctional therapy is a program used to correct the improper function of the tongue and facial muscles. It involves strengthening the tongue and orofacial muscles by teaching individuals how to engage the muscles to the appropriate position.
Individuals with predominant mouth breathing (or insufficient habitual nasal breathing) often develop maladaptive habits and patterns of orofacial function that may impact various conditions including:
Facial skeletal growth (maxillofacial development)
Sleep-disordered breathing (including snoring and sleep apnea)
Oral hygiene and dental problems
Teeth grinding (bruxism)
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction
Neck and shoulder tension
Recent research has shown that myofunctional therapy may reduce the symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing (such as snoring), and ameliorate mild to moderate OSA (obstructive sleep apnea).
Call 407-425-0087 and make an appointment with Dr. King if you suffer from sleep apnea or experience sleep-disordered breathing. Our Central Florida dental office is ready to assist you with all of your dental needs.
