TONGUE THRUST

Getting the tongue to rest and function in the mouth as opposed to resting and pushing on the teeth in the front or on the sides is crucial for many orthodontic patients. The results are impressive!

MOUTH BREATHING & OPEN MOUTH POSTURE

Getting the lips closed at rest and establishing nasal breathing is one of the most important necessities for proper facial and dental development as well as overall health and breathing. In addition to resolving mouth breathing and resting with the mouth open, getting the tongue to rest and function within the mouth is also paramount to proper oral development.

This child was a mouth breather due to allergies and restricted maxillary frenum. He had significant medical issues that were the result of his myofunctional issues. He was constantly sick due to aspirating on his foods and liquids. He has drooling issues and feeding issues as well. He was able to come off of his medication and his health resumed once he completed myofunctional therapy and was able to correctly use the muscles of his mouth for chewing, swallowing, and at rest.

Mouth breathing before myofunctional therapy and the successful results after myofunctional therapy. Notice how her facial and dental structure changed once she strengthened her lip and tongue muscles so she was able to rest with her lips closed.

This boy had significant changes in his facial and dental structure with myofunctional therapy. His chin muscles relaxed and appeared less strained/bumpy. His teeth came together nicely, and his lips became more toned.

SUCKING HABITS

Sucking habits such as thumb sucking, finger sucking, nail biting, prolonged pacifier use, and even sippy cup use can negatively affect the development of the mouth including displacing the teeth, narrowing the palate, and changing the positioning and muscle development of the tongue. Sucking behaviors such as those listed above cause the tongue to function and rest low in the mouth while strengthening the muscles of the tongue that push the tongue down and forward (i.e., tongue thrust). Sucking habits can cause the palate to narrow, the nasal airway to decrease in size, the lips to rest open, can inhibit the eruption of teeth, and therefore potentially lead to issues with feeding, drooling, choking, correct chewing and swallowing patterns, health (as germs are introduced in the mouth), snoring, and on-going mouth breathing issues. Often times the oral muscles must be rehabilitated and proper functioning restored with myofunctional therapy when a suckiing habit has been present.

Below are BEFORE and AFTER pictures of our patients after our Finger Sucking program.
