Jaw – Tongue Exercises and Training 5/5 – Strengthen the back part of the Tongue
Let’s train the back part of the tongue!
Say the words like “Q” and “G” such as;
“Quentin questioned gurgly goggle”.
Practice saying the sentence and repeat it 3-5 repetitions, 3-5 times per day.
Remember we are doing this exercise so that you become predominantly nose breather.
Why becoming nose breather?
It is because nose breathing promotes healthy TMJ jaw joint.
In other words, dry mouth often caused by mouth breathing has a strong link to Clenching and grinding especially at night (bruxism).
This often leads to tight cheeks / jaw and it can contribute to too much pressure in the TMJ.
It is sometimes referred to as temporomandublar joint dysfunction (TMD).
So let’s get your tongue exercising and keep your TMJ heathy!
