Myo Munchee Therapy

Transforming Pediatric Oral Health Care

Myo Munchee, a revolutionary oral health device developed by Australian dentist Dr. Kevin Bourke, is transforming pediatric oral health care. This soft, medical-grade silicone chewing device, shaped like a mouthguard, is designed to enhance oral muscle development, promote healthy breathing, and address habits like thumb sucking through myofunctional therapy.

Myo Munchee stimulates and desensitizes the lips, face, and jaw muscles when chewed for just 10 minutes daily. At Agape Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend Myo Munchee therapy to empower parents and improve various pediatric oral health conditions, including tongue tie, special needs, and pacifier habits.

Myo Munchee: A Powerful Tool for Correcting Oral Habits

At Agape Pediatric Dentistry, we understand the importance of addressing oral habits in children, as they can significantly impact their overall oral health and development. The Myo Munchee is a revolutionary oral appliance designed to help correct various oral habits, promoting healthy jaw growth, proper oral posture, and optimal airway development.

  1. Addressing Thumb Sucking and Pacifier Habits

    • The Myo Munchee serves as an effective tool to help children break the habit of thumb sucking, finger sucking, or pacifier use.

    • By providing a safe and engaging alternative for oral stimulation, the Myo Munchee can redirect these habits, preventing potential dental and facial developmental issues.

  2. Supporting Proper Swallowing Patterns

    • Improper swallowing patterns, such as tongue thrusting, can lead to misaligned teeth and other oral health problems.

    • The Myo Munchee reinforces correct swallowing patterns by strengthening the muscles involved in the swallowing process, promoting lip integrity during vital facial movements.

  3. Encouraging Nasal Breathing

    • Mouth breathing is a common issue among children, and it can contribute to various health problems, including sleep disturbances and behavioral issues.

    • By enhancing muscle strength and tone, the Myo Munchee encourages nasal breathing, supporting optimal airway development and promoting better sleep quality.

Oral Muscle Development

At Agape Pediatric Dentistry, we understand the importance of proper oral muscle development in children. The Myo Munchee is a revolutionary device that can help support this crucial aspect of your child's growth and development.

Chewing for Muscle Tone

The Myo Munchee is a small, soft, medical-grade silicone device shaped like a mouthguard with a handle. Just 10 minutes of daily chewing on this device can improve the tone and function of the muscles in the lips, face, and jaws. It's available in different sizes, ranging from Myo Munchee Bebe for infants aged 6-18 months to Myo Munchee Adult for ages 12 and up.

  1. Facial Muscle Development

    • Chewing on the Myo Munchee helps exercise the jaw and facial muscles, which is essential for proper facial and jaw development in children.

    • Consistent use, at least 5 minutes twice a day, is key to seeing the benefits of improved muscle tone and coordination.
       

  2. Oral Motor Function

    • The Myo Munchee is part of the 'Munchee Movement,' which aims to raise awareness and empower people to reclaim natural, functional chewing and oral motor function.

    • It's designed to promote nasal breathing, encourage correct tongue posture, improve oral muscle strength and coordination, enhance gum health, and stimulate saliva production.
