Help! I need to get rid of the paci!
Is there something I can use to wean my child from the pacifier?
What do I do about the shape of my child’s jaw and teeth from the pacifier use?
Do I have to wait until my child is older to correct their teeth from pacifier use?

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy
My goal as a pediatric dentist is to provide comprehensive care to our patients. What I have

determines a lot of how are children grow, develop and function. Some children require a specific therapy
targeted towards optimizes oral function. This therapy is called orofacial myofunctional therapy.
