During oro-myofunctional therapy (OMFT) a lot of practice is required to learn the correct resting position of the tongue, to learn a correct swallow and to unlearn mouth breathing. There are various techniques that can help with this:
- The Payne technique, to visualize the position of the tongue at rest and when swallowing.
- Taping, to mask the lips when the mouth is open or to prevent mouth breathing.
- Learning to swallow.
- Other techniques to support the exercises.
