Did You Know?… Pressure on your teeth

Only a light force of approximately 1.5 grams of pressure is needed to move a tooth within the jaw?

Incorrect tongue posture when swallowing can produce forces of up to 500 grams of pressure, with the lower lip being able to exert a force of up to 300 grams!!

Establishing harmonious facial & oral muscle activity through myofunctional therapy, aids in proper jaw growth & development as well as correct position of teeth within the jaws.
