This expanded text also includes contributions from four continents and therapy suggestions from ten additional clinicians.

The considerable material on treatment includes theory, principles, approaches, instrumentation, and specific exercises and assignments. Considerable insights and principles from orthodontics are included throughout the text.

The authors recommend this text as a resource for learning about the background and state-of-the-art in the United States and internationally regarding the theory and practice of orofacial myology. The book will be of special interest to myofunctional clinicians, speech-language pathologists, dentists, and other interested professionals.
