Myofunctional Therapy Assessment and treatment
Do you think you or your loved one needs the Jaw Gym's help? With a one hour consultation, data will be gathered and will reveal possible oral tissue ties, airway concerns, over-developed or weak muscles, chewing, swallowing patterns and specific oral measurements. A thorough report, with photos, will then be reviewed and given to the patient. Any allied healthcare practitioners that may be required will receive a referral with the appropriate information to help with the treatment plan. If an orthodontic appliance system is advised, Dr. Roche will need to see the patient to prescribe the necessary appliances. We work with many different orthodontic appliances including myobrace. Our treatment sessions can range between 3 to 12 sessions depending on the complexity of the patient. Initial assessment cost is $230 and custom treatment programs range from $130 per 40 min session.
Tongue tie assessments and pre and post release therapy
Do you suspect you or your loved one has issues with the tongue? Sometimes this goes unnoticed for many of the growing years and can result in a narrow upper arch, picky eating, jaw pain, neck pain, gagging on foods and even tiring when speaking. With a professional assessment by Leanna, a decision can be made to involve a tongue tie release provider who is an Oral Surgeon or specifically trained Dentist.
Finger sucking and nail biting habit elimination programs
Do you have a loved one who is having difficulty with stopping finger sucking or biting their nails no matter what they have tried? The pressure of the fingers in the mouth can change the jaw formation and teeth alignment. Biting nails in adulthood can also cause teeth to shift, become mobile or even wear down the edges of the teeth. Our program is customized to you and your lifestyle. Like developing good habits, we include continuous motivation with consistent check in follow up by phone, text or video calls to help patients succeed.
