Targeted speech training for improved patients outcome

Dental misalignments can have a major impact on speech patterns. So-called "myofunctional" disorders, an unfavourable interaction of the facial, mouth and jaw muscles, incorrect swallowing or tongue thrusting, can have a negative impact on the alignment of the teeth.

We are convinced that the orthodontic treatment success can be accelerated and supported by targeted speech therapy. So we offer patients complementary speech therapy treatments directly in our surgery.

Based on of research of the positive effects of the myofunctional therapy on the orthodontic treatment, we have decided to undertake a scientific study that examines the connection of orofacial muscle balance and the duration of orthodontic treatment.

Our speech therapy offer at one glance:
