Tongue Thrusting Treatment in San Juan Capistrano

Tongue thrusting can negatively affect facial and dental development and hamper orthodontic  treatment in many ways. A significant percentage of orthodontic patients have had some form of tongue  thrust habit that caused the displacement of their teeth and/or affected jaw development, thus causing them  to need braces. Persistence of a tongue thrust issue may prolong orthodontic treatment, prevent correction,  or cause relapse of the orthodontic result.
