Are You Swallowing Correctly?

Apparently, the way I swallow is not the correct way. I have been told this by two dentists now. I never even knew that there was a correct and wrong way. Its seems that when I swallow the tip and/or sides of the tongue touch the teeth during swallowing, and shifting or tilting of the teeth can result. The problem is people subconsciously swallow about 2,000 times every 24 hours. So I have to swallow correctly, or my teeth will suffer. The swallowing technique is a habit, and habits can be broken. So, what characterizes a correct swallowing pattern? During correct swallowing, the tip and middle part of the tongue press on the top of the mouth (palate). Then the back of the tongue contacts the throat muscles, pushing the food backward and down into the esophagus. My dentist told to me to try to swallow correctly at least 10 times a day. When I get used to it I should start doing it by swallowing soft stuff.

 So, are you swallowing correctly?

    Never heard of it!

    I mean never thought there is such a thing as a correct way to swallow! I guess this qualifies to things we don’t know that we don’t know :)

    I’m trying to do it the right way but it seems that years of irregular way of swallowing will be too tough to break.
