Myofunctional Disorder and Causes

Posted by Dr. Abeyta on Mar 24 2015, 09:15 AM

Myofunctional disorders are commonly referred to as “bad bite.” A bad bite means that the upper and lower teeth are not lined up properly, which can place strain on the jaw muscles and cause headaches. These disorders can develop in children, teens, and adults, and can cause a host of problems.

Myofunctional disorders are caused by habits, such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, and lip sucking. These habits can lead to mouth and jaw misalignment as well as facial and neck pain.
