Tongue Posture

Correct Tongue Posture

The latest studies now show that it is not, in fact, the pressure of the swallowing that disrupts the natural eruption pattern of the teeth, jaws, and lips, but rather the consistent pressure from the tongue resting against the teeth rather than in the roof of the mouth and behind the bump in the front teeth. 

The main goal of an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist is to intimately habituate a new, correct rest posture of the tongue.

At the end of this treatment, our patients will be able to swallow better, chew more easily, and avoid relapse and end with a beautiful smile.
