BACKGROUND: Occlusion alterations can be associated to bad habits (such as thumb sucking, oral breathing, atypical swallowing and labial interposition) which can lead to functional anomalies. CASE REPORT: Three cases are reported with the good results of myofunctional and orthodontic therapy. CONCLUSION: When there are bad habits, orthodontics should be combined with a myofunctional therapy.
