Tongue thrust refers to a forward or downward resting posture, where the tongue rests against or over the lower teeth.
Tongue thrust can develop the habit of mouth breathing and is usually associated with other conditions such as habitual digit-sucking and open bite malocclusion.
Tongue exercise to increase tongue muscles tone and correct for tongue posture is essential for the treatment of tongue thrust and the associated conditions (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.
