The MyoMunchee is a great tool to assist with better chewing and swallowing patterns in all ages. At The Myofunctional Centre we find that toddlers really love these little mouth guard like appliances and they can be a great substitute for a pacifier or a thumb sucking habit. Just 10 minutes of chewing on these things each day is often enough to make great changes when combined with Oral Myology
Chewing is a very important process for a growing child to do frequently and correctly. Without ‘hardening the diet’ early on in toddlerhood, children do not get opportunity to transmit the correct forces through their growing jaws. As muscles pull on bone they help encourage it to grow properly. Soft and sloppy refined foods do not provide this chance for proper growth and development.
