It is a habit in which the tongue is thrust between the upper and lower teeth during the act of swallowing. The normal position of the tongue during swallowing is behind the upper teeth and at the beginning of the palate.

In continuation of my posts, am touching on a topic which is very close to me and have seen many children and adults affected by it and remains untreated due to lack of information.
If your child requires Orthodontic Treatment, it may be worth getting seen to sooner rather than later. Early treatment acts as a preventative measure to ensure children have healthy teeth and gums.
A Dental Emergency can occur at any unexpected moment. Apart from the apparent physical and mental pain, it can be potentially dangerous in the future. If you prolong treatment or ignore a Dental Emergency, this can cause further problems that will be more painful and expensive to treat.
At Align Dentistry & Medical Centre, we specialise in the treatment of malocclusion of the teeth and jaws using Braces. We have a variety of Braces treatments that you can choose from, each having its own specialities and treatment programs, including Damon, Invisalign and Lingual Braces.
Having a good DENTIST by your side does not only help you maintain good oral health but also helps you prevent any serious diseases in the future.
Do you remember the time your orthodontist informed you of the need to wear braces? You probably cringed and tried to refuse those metal brackets but gave it a second thought because they were needed for you to achieve the perfect smile.
Having crooked and misaligned teeth are a real struggle, especially when you are an adult. In fact, the fastest growing area of the Orthodontist’s practice is in the adult market. Lingual Braces or Invisalign Orthodontic Therapy will certainly be appealing to some adults who are self-conscious about BRACES.
For a majority of people twice a year is fine. Plaque and tartar buildup are inevitable even if you do have perfect oral hygiene. Your teeth will stay clean and healthy with a professional cleaning every six months.
Most patients get confused between an overjet and an overbite and is quite important to know the difference when looking in your child’s mouth. Ideally by age 7 to 8 years is when children need to be checked by their treating clinicians for any aberrant collusion traits.
For decades now, the only Othodontic Treatment for mal-aligned teeth has been the conventional method of putting on metal braces. Although, this has turned out to be a largely effective treatment, there are now options that can help you align your teeth, with the most famous and recent ones being known as clear aligners.
In the next of series of my Blog post, I would be discussing the reason for crowding of teeth and its correction through Braces. The need to extract teeth and when you could avoid extractions.
Damon Braces are a way of straightening teeth, fitted in the same way as traditional metal braces. The only difference is, in Damon Braces, a passive slide mechanism attaches wires to brackets and moves naturally with the teeth as they realign, instead of having brackets to tighten and adjust the braces regularly in the metal braces.
Sugar sees your teeth quite differently to the way you see them. Sugar sees them as a meal prepared specially for it and to be consumed. Sugar is feasted on by bacteria which turn it into acid which eat into your teeth enamel and destroy it.
The best part of lingual braces is they can be used in combination with metal braces. You can use traditional metal braces on the bottom row of your teeth where they are hidden by your lower lip and use lingual braces on your upper lip which is more visible to the public eye.
Luckily, dental treatments have evolved. Dentists in Sydney, today, give you a sedative before they drill your teeth. Sedation could be Oral or General Anaesthesia. Which treatment you receive will depend on the severity of your pain and the type of dental work you are looking to receive.
