Tongue Thrust

Tongue Thrust

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 anyone how to swallow properly and avoid problems with their teeth. We work closely with orthodontists and dentists throughout the Twin Cities to ensure that you are swallowing correctly and maintaining adequate oral resting posture with your tongue and lips so that you or your child can maximize from the benefit of any treatment recommended by your team.
