How likely is it that a abnormal tongue thrust corrected by a speech therapist?

Good with practice. Nobody teaches a newborn how to swallow. Many combinations are possible, depending on the shape of the nipple used in feeding them when firstborn. Tongue thrust results when the tip of the tongue touches the teeth instead of the ridges of the palate. Since we swallow hundreds of times a day, this powerful muscle can move the front teeth creating problems. Therapists teach optimal swallowing.
