Correct Tongue to Spot

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 on the spot or incisive papilla.  The main goal of a Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist is to intimately habituate a new, correct rest posture of the tongue.
