The effect of the tongue on development of the dental occlusion is a result of its pressure on teeth and other areas during rest and function.
Poor tongue posture and associated tongue dysfunction or bad habits such as digit sucking can result in malocclusion of teeth, such as open-bite malocclusion (Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital. 2016; 36(5); 386).
Tongue exercise and correction of tongue posture are very important for retention of orthodontic treatment and prevention of relapse (Eur J Orthod. 2016; 38(3); 227).
MYOSPOTS are small, circular pads, made of biodegradable natural polymers that are safe for internal use. They have nice colours and flavours that give them a pleasant look and taste and are Vegan friendly.
Using MYOSPOTS daily for several months can help change the tongue posture to rest against the palate.
The MYOSPOTS tongue exercise can be employed in the treatment of a range of conditions that involve weakness of tongue muscles.
