Tongue thrust is the act of pushing the tongue against or between the teeth when swallowing. The constant pressure of the tongue against or between the teeth will not allow the teeth to bite together. This is known as an open bite. Studies are indicating that tongue thrust is a risk factor for TMD and facial pain. It may occur due to a low rest posture and/or a tongue tie.

Haley T, Patient
"[Beth] has taught me a variety of exercises to retrain my tongue to sit in the right position. I found that through her extensive consult that I had enlarged tonsils that I got removed as well. With the tonsil removal surgery, I am now able to breathe correctly with correct tongue placement too."
