Signs

At Myofunctional Therapy of La Jolla, we help children and adults with thumb or finger sucking, nail biting and tongue sucking habits. Poor oral habits at an early age can reshape the palate and impact foundational structures of the mouth and face that can carry on into adulthood. These habits can cause a high palate, early loss of baby teeth, abnormal swallowing patterns, improper tongue positions and speech problems. It is critical to eliminated these habits before attempting myofunctional therapy or orthodontics. Myofunctional Therapy of La Jolla can provide the techniques and skills to break thumb sucking or nail biting habits.
