Face Yoga For Face Perfection
We are interested in whole health for you and your child which is why Dr. Crowe is always researching and gaining certifications in therapies to treat the entirety of you – tooth, mind, and body.
Myofunctional Therapy, better known as “myo”, is kind of like face yoga. Through a series of exercises by a certified coach, you or your child will begin to condition the muscles in your cheeks, face, and mouth to rest where they should.
If there ever were a poster child for myofunctional therapy, it would be Napoleon Dynamite. Remember how his lips and jaws didn’t seem to rest correctly? Myofunctional therapy helps with everything from breathing and headaches to the overall aesthetic appearance of the face.
What Is Myo Therapy?
The purpose of myo is to gain a normal resting posture for your lips, jaw, and tongue.This is important because all of these components can be trained to correct resting posture so that you can achieve proper breathing. Myofunctional therapy often includes the following:
• Meet weekly for exercises via a virtual meeting
• Coach with kindness and compassion
• Provide you with exercises to do each week in between sessions
• Get your tongue, lips, and jaw resting in the proper posture

North Portland Orthodontics is so fabulous. They are so thorough with their care, making sure you’re completely set all the way through your braces and after with your retainer needs. My original glued bottom retainer lasted TEN years before needing a small piece of glue replaced. They were super quick with getting me an appointment and were super friendly during this visit.

Dr. Crowe and her staff are the best! Everyone is very friendly and takes the time to answer your questions. My kids love going to the orthodontist, which I can’t complain about. Dr. Crowe is personable, silly with the kids, and has always presented all of the different alternatives to treatment. She supports a conservative approach. My kids love the shirts they’ve gotten, the chances to win prizes each month, and everyone there. I will not take my children anywhere else!
