Myofunctional Therapy
And Orthodontics

Critical New Research

The AOMT is proud to have helped lead the world in education of interdisciplinary teams of clinicians and researchers worldwide on the application of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy as an adjunct treatment of orthodontics. We are engaged with universities in the facilitation of research and curriculum development.

Please click on the images below for a deeper dive into current research that we and our extended community have helped developed.
