Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have a habit of tongue thrusting. Now, I am using permanent retainers for the past four months. How to overcome it?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please say your age. Usually, tongue thrusting is done unconsciously. So initially, you should be aware of it. Habit breaking appliance can also be used, and it takes time. It can also be stopped by a process called cognitive behavioral therapy.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
