Lip sucking habits

May 2022

Filed under: Uncategorized — drfranklin @ 12:16 pm
Lip sucking habits are an Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder (OMD) that can exacerbate dental malocclusions and can distort the facial shape. Sucking habits are difficult to eliminate and requires patient compliance in wanting to stop the habit. Sometimes, patients name the lip they suck( in this case, her lip was named “Louie”) which makes it more difficult to eliminate but IAOM Certified Orofacial Myofunctional Therapists like Dr. Honor Franklin at Honor Franklin Myofunctional & Speech Clinic is an expert at eliminating noxious sucking habits of the lips, thumb, finger and tongue!
