Myofunctional Therapy Explained
Joplin oral myofunctional therapy focuses on improving the function and coordination of facial muscles, particularly those involving the tongue, lips, and jaws. By using a series of exercises, techniques, and appliances, we address and correct oral muscular imbalances that can lead to issues such as improper tongue posture, breathing problems, speech difficulties, and even sleep apnea.
Our purpose is to create and maintain healthy habits that promote excellent facial and oral health.

This varies based on your needs and the severity of your situation. Typically, patients may need regular sessions over several months to achieve optimal results.

Smiles we love to share
I went in with a huge dental fear, but I received the best care I’ve ever had. Dr. Roberts was very gentle! I will definitely keep this dentist, and his team was great too!
Such an incredible dentist office! Everyone is so friendly and really took their time during our appointment. I felt free to ask any questions throughout the visit. They were so great with my 6 year old. And the monthly plan makes dental care really affordable, even without insurance. We can’t wait to get our whole family started.
It was the first time I ever left the dentist office and texted my wife, "I absolutely loved my time at the dentist today." The atmosphere was soothing and relaxing; the staff was professional and considerate. I have found my dentist home and it's not even close.
