Summary: The challenges presented in this article, for the orthodontist who has largely ignored orofacial myofunctional therapy and for the orofacial myologist who may have been more enthusiastic about claims than evidence deserves, are intended to encourage understanding and improve communication between professionals. Efforts to consider orofacial myofunctional variations in a broader perspective should result in added recognition of orofacial myofunctional therapy, while also improving patient care.
