Deglutition Unit

Occlusion and deglutition: Malocclusion conditions are rather common. A great proportion of children wear orthodontic braces to correct their occlusion. However, some of them have their origin in a lingual malfunction: if it is not corrected on time, once the orthodontia is removed, the dental system might misplace again. Miofunctional Therapy will rebalance the muscular oro- linguo-pharynx-facial. Besides the correction of deglutition problems related to neurological or dysarthrial problems is important due to their implications in severe health problems caused by bronco-pulmonary inhalations.
