As many as 70% of children experience some form of tongue thrust. Tongue thrust, also known as reverse swallow, happens when the tongue moves forward and pushes against the teeth when swallowing. After enough swallows, your child's teeth can get pushed out of alignment and cause orthodontal problems.
We can teach your child how to swallow properly and avoid problems with their teeth. Orthodontists are expensive, treating tongue thrust is not. Come in and see us today if you think your child's teeth are out of alignment or your dentist/orthodontist sees issues with your child's teeth.
