Here are some studies and articles about the science and therapies at the core of the OMBRE program.
Effects of oral motor exercises and laser therapy on chronic temporomandibular disorders: a randomized study with follow-up.
This study investigated the efficacy of combining low-level laser therapy (LLLT) with oral motor exercises (OM-exercises) for rehabilitation of patients with chronic temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). LLLT combined with OM-exercises was more effective in promoting TMD rehabilitation than LLLT alone was. Similar treatment results were verified with the OMT protocol.
The skeletal open bite will require intrusion of the posterior sextants with the assistance of bite blocks, temporary anchorage devices, high pull headgear, and as a last resort – orthognathic surgery. The orthodontic treatment should be augmented with the orofacial myofunctional therapy.
Orthodontic treatment of a patient with unilateral orofacial muscle dysfunction: The efficacy of myofunctionaltherapy on the treatment outcome.
These results suggest that orthodontic treatment with orofacial myofunctional therapy is an effective option for a patient with orofacial muscle dysfunction.
A Systematic Review of the Effectiveness of Exercise, Manual Therapy, Electrotherapy, Relaxation Training, and Biofeedback in the Management of Temporomandibular Disorder
This systematic review analyzed studies examining the effectiveness of various physical therapy interventions for temporomandibular disorder; active exercises and manual mobilizations may be effective.
What OMTs do is teach patients how to chew, swallow, and breathe correctly. A discussion about the signs and symptoms of a patterning problem with orofacial muscles.
