How is Froggymouth working ?

“If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.” 

Albert Einstein

“If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”

Domino effect: from inhibition of the sucking swallowing sequence to balanced orofacial praxis.

Chewing, swallowing, speaking and breathing are praxis that interact and influence each other at all times. Dysfunction in one of them is all it takes to create an imbalance among all the praxis of the orofacial sphere.

On the other hand, automated reeducation for swallowing harmonizes the entire orofacial sphere thanks to a chain reaction that begins with the elevation of the styloglossus.

Wearing Froggymouth first forces secondary swallowing  until it becomes automatic. Once the praxis becomes automatic, the tongue is raised against the palate every time you swallow.

The notion of comfort determines the tongue’s position between swallowing motions. In view of repeated elevation for swallowing, the tongue will adopt a raised position at rest.

“The notion of comfort is the priority of the new program: the most effective solution is chosen and then consolidated for further use.” P.M Lledo.

Tongue reeducation is of utmost importance because it also determines how the patient breathes. A high posture at rest for the rear section of the tongue alone produces an airtight seal that keeps air from passing through the oral cavity.

Here again, it is the notion of comfort described by Lledo that sustainably restores nasal breathing through the domino effect.

“The tongue is a respiratory organ. Restoring nasal breathing requires reeducation for the myofunctional praxis.” Dr Takashi Ono

The practitioner’s clinical experience will ensure the proper reeducation of the entire orofacial sphere.

Froggymouth: a simple atypical swallowing inhibitor

Atypical swallowing, a vestige of infantile swallowing and the root cause of a range of dysmorphia, has two phases: 

Sucking requires a lip seal in order to create negative pressure inside the oral cavity. The lip and chin muscles contract.

The tongue is then placed between the dental arches and pushes against the contracted labial or jugal mucosa in order to allow the contents of the mouth to be moved towards the pharynx. 

Froggymouth works to inhibit the suck and swallow mechanism by separating the two lips. Since a seal cannot be formed, suck and swallow via pressure differential is no longer possible. 

What about breathing ?

Froggymouth produces a raised section of the tongue, first when swallowing and then permanently once the praxis has become automatic. This new lingual position forms an airtight seal inhibiting mouth breathing. Detailed explanations in the FroggyMouth masterclass.

The automation phase

As separation of the lips inhibits suction, saliva builds up in the patient’s oral cavity.

The patient will have to find a new way to swallow the saliva on their own : through occlusion of the dental arches and elevation of the lingual dome against the palatal arch. In this way, the patient discovers secondary swallowing autonomously and spontaneously.

Biochemical changes of the synapses but also of the neuron nuclei lead to immediate storage of new motor patterns in the long-term memory (Eric Kandel, Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2000).

“A car accident, or a happy event such as your wedding, creates such an emotional shock that you will remember every detail of it 5 or 10 years later without having to rerun the scene repeatedly in your mind” Dr. Fellus.
