Here’s What Our Clients Say.
I only wish I had found them sooner!
Over the course of about five months, I saw noticeable improvement in the way I swallowed, placed my tongue during rest, and mostly the ringing in my ears which has since decreased drastically. I have also seen significant improvement in my open bite. If not for Alyssa, I would never have known all the impacts something as simple as tongue placement could cause. She has been been a pleasure to work with and has taken ample time to make sure not only was I understanding the exercises but that I was doing them properly. I hope more doctors and patients become aware of this therapy in the future, as it truly is life changing.
Alyssa at Pittsburgh Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy, was my last hope to correct a gaping bite issue. Despite three sets of Invisalign braces, my ‘bite’ on the back right side refused to meet. The orthodontist gave me wo choices. Live with my bite ‘as is,’ or contact Alyssa to see if she could try and correct a tongue thrust that dated back to my childhood….. After three months, I noticed my tongue resting peacefully on the roof of my mouth instead of swimming around without a home. Chewing became less of a chore and I started adding foods, such as roast beef, back into my diet. My work is not done, but he improvement in less than a year is dramatic. Many thanks to Alyssa for giving me a second chance. Bonus- My orthodontist has agreed to try another round of Invisalign braces.
My two youngest have been pacifier free for almost a year.
