    Why Would My Child Need a Tongue Trainer?

    Myofunctional Therapy aims to correct improper swallowing habits in young children that crowd their teeth and restrict their airway.

    Because a person swallows 500-1000 times a day, improper swallowing can cause a variety of problems.

    But it is actually the resting position of the tongue that does the most damage because it is more constant. 

    Opening the arch that the teeth sit in early ensures enough room for the tongue and therefore better sleeping patterns and airway.

    Correct swallowing depends on a proper relationship between muscles of the face, mouth and throat.

    To swallow properly, muscles and nerves in the tongue, cheeks and throat must work together in harmony.

    When a person swallows normally, the tip of the tongue presses firmly against the roof of the mouth or hard palate, located slightly behind the front teeth.

    The tongue acts in concert with all the other muscles involved in swallowing.

    The hard palate, meanwhile, absorbs the force created by the tongue.

    This usually starts with an evaluation of oral habits your child has and establishing a relationship with our dentist, Dr. Rouse.

    We offer 3D Dental Imaging to monitor your child’s airway and potential benefit from a trainer.
