Don’t give up! TECHNIQUE is the KEY word in the work of the tongue.
Prevention is better and cheaper than the best treatment.
The bane of the 21st century! An epidemic of malocclusion, speech and posture defects. THAT doesn’t sound nice. Simple things are the hardest!
POWER to swallow, chew and breathe properly
The POWER of good habits.
Developing good habits is the goal of functional orthodontics. Where your baby holds his tongue. How the tongue lies on the palate – MATTERS. I encourage you to support parents and inform them about the destructive impact of improper eating and breathing on a child’s development and by helping children with basic activities (tying shoes, putting on shoes, cleaning up after themselves, eliminating hard products from the diet, etc.).
Chewing is a physical activity that must be learned from an early age.
Attention We must learn to chew properly. Life is the rehabilitation of a vital organ.
Chewing is very important for the child’s physical and mental development and the proper development of the jaws. Incorrect development of this function may occur due to incorrect eating habits, e.g. a mushy diet, using a bottle instead of a spoon for too long, too few hard foods.
Attention! Children are great at manipulating and forcing preferred foods. Your baby’s chewing and crushing of hard foods provides the necessary stimulus for proper development and growth of the jaw bones.
Is your child:
• breathes through the mouth
• clenches his teeth, grinds his teeth
• has a headache
• has incorrect body posture, slouches
• eats with mouth open
• has knee valgus
• has an invalid language position
From Speech Therapist @panilogopedyczna
Both breathing and swallowing are activities that are beyond your control. However, you should be aware that an incorrect resting position of the tongue may contribute to the development of malocclusion and pronunciation.

There are two types of swallowing – infantile and mature.
  • Infantile swallowing is the way of swallowing saliva with the tongue flat on the floor of the mouth. Infantile swallowing should develop into mature swallowing by the age of 3-4.
  • Adult type of swallowing – the tip of the tongue rests on the gingival fold behind the upper teeth, and thus makes vertical movements, the jaws are tight and the lips are closed without unnecessary effort.
The transition from infant to adult swallowing occurs gradually. The better training a child receives in primary activities (e.g. chewing, biting, drinking from an open cup), the better prepared he or she is for articulatory activities.

When practicing swallowing, please pay attention to:

When practicing swallowing, pay attention to the correct head position.

Sometimes it is necessary to cooperate with other specialists, e.g. an otolaryngologist (to cut the frenulum / remove the third tonsil) or an orthodontist who will recommend a vestibular plate or the use of a device with a tongue barrier.

Persistent infantile swallowing may lead to interdental production of sounds.

Causes of persistent infantile swallowing:
  • eating mushy meals
  • nasal obstruction
  • habitual mouth breathing
  • hypertrophy of the third tonsil
  • short sublingual frenulum
  • drinking from a sippy cup
  • thumb sucking
  • long-term pacifier sucking
  • low tongue muscle tone
  • incorrect body position




A new fashion or conscious exploration of a topic.
Muscles – tongue – hyoid bone – TMD – worn teeth – tinnitus – headache.
A visit to an otolaryngologist – without any abnormalities in the ears that could cause noise and pain.
Visit to a neurologist – no abnormalities that could cause pain.
Often such a patient also visits a psychologist – when pain clouds your world.
The last link is the DENTIST, the patient comes to this doctor on his own, tired of the oppressive pain.

The symptoms of temporomandibular joint are so non-specific that the source of the pain cannot be clearly defined.
PAIN is not a measurable diagnostic factor. WHEN AFTER therapy and treatment of temporomandibular joints, the patient reports no pain.

Strength in a team!


A child who has trouble lifting the tongue up (i.e. has difficulty keeping the tongue in the resting position) may develop an incorrect breathing and swallowing pattern. As a consequence, this disrupts the child’s proper development and also leads to malocclusion.

A speech therapist is not a letter teacher. He is a specialist who can influence the proper development of your child

The best jaw expander is the tongue!!

The tongue at the bottom develops and expands the jaw!!


Parents, take care of your baby – consult your baby with a myofunctional speech therapist.

Prevention is better and cheaper than the best treatment.
