The FroggyMouth corrects wrong swallowing functions. In a way that goes beyond the usual, because a shorter treatment time is needed, results are better in many cases and the risk of relapse is small.
The FroggyMouth corrects the swallowing functions by learning a new behavior pattern. With a FroggyMouth between the lips, the upper and lower teeth make light contact as you swallow and press the tongue against the roof of the mouth (just behind the front upper teeth).
15 minutes a day, minimum 3 months
The FroggyMouth is worn for 15 minutes a day while watching television. During that 15 minutes, the swallowing pattern changes, which in the long run ensures that this also happens if the FroggyMouth is not worn. This requires at least three months. After that, if necessary, attention can be paid to the lip closure (eventualy with the aid of the therefore developed lippos). The already automated swallow then provides an important basis for this.
Strictly follow the instructions
For the FroggyMouth to take effect, it is important to actually follow these steps:
- Use continuously for 15 minutes every day. If the FroggyMouth is removed from the mouth once during those 15 minutes, start again.
- Use the FroggyMouth while watching a television at eye level, because the head is not bent.
- Keep watching attentively, so that the head moves as little as possible and the correct swallowing can be activated in the same way during this 15 minutes.
After that, the FroggyMouth can be cleaned with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Then dry it well and put it back in the box.
Small, medium or large
The FroggyMouth comes in three sizes: small, medium and large. The width of the client’s mouth determines the required version. When using the FroggyMouth, the corners of the mouth should remain relaxed. Therefore: rather a little too small FroggyMouth, than one that is too big.
