Tongue Thrust

  • 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).

Snoring and Sleep apnea

Dental Malocclusions

Digit Sucking

  • Retraining the tongue to rest against the palate is an effective intervention for treatment of habitual digit (normally the thumb) sucking and prolonged use of pacifiers.
  • If digit-sucking habit persists, malocclusions such as open-bite can develop.
  • Correction of tongue posture and induction of nasal breathing is key in the treatment of habitual digit sucking (Int Dent J. 2015; 65(5); 235).
