A tongue thrust and a tongue-tie are two very different things but I talk about them a lot in my myofunctional therapy practice.
That's because they're both oral myofunctional disorders that can affect adults and children, and can cause a range of adverse health effects.
In this video, I'll explain why a tongue thrust is a learned habit, and why a tongue-tie is a physical restriction of the tongue that usually requires a minor surgical procedure to treat.
Either way, oral myofunctional exercises are required to successfully treat these conditions and ensure long-term results.
