If not eliminated early, tongue thrust results in orthodontic braces at some point to make up for what the tongue did not do naturally during development.
So what if we could go back and potentially undo some of these contributing factors at the earliest of ages rather than waiting until they are 8 and already entrenched in the reverse swallow tongue thrust patterns? This idea is so radical and revolutionary it just might change the face of tongue thrust!
I am frequently asked about what can be done with the tongue thrust kiddos who are under the age of intervention for the Stone Tongue Thrust Protocol (STTP) because they don’t have the awareness and attention to actively participate in the intensive remediation program. Should you ignore it? Wait for 8?
