When the tongue pushes forward against or across the teeth, while talking, swallowing or at rest it may have a lasting negative effect on the teeth.
A Speech-Language Pathologist may call this pattern a frontal lisp, interdental lisp or tongue thrust; however, no matter what you label the pattern the tongue is pushing on the front teeth having an impact on their position.
Correcting tongue placement by a specialized Speech-Language Pathologist plays a crucial role in good orthodontic treatment, making the treatment’s results long lasting and much easier to achieve.
