Research Reviews

Many of us promise ourselves to read research articles, and then never get around to it.

After reading the reviews you won't be able to say that!  Beginning in January, 2018, a new review will be posted every two weeks.  You’ll get a summary of the article and applications to therapy.  

Please consider being a GUEST REVIEWER!  Just write about an article that you like, in a related field and submit your review (up to 600 words).  Please send to; we'll post it for you!

Personally, I’m very interested in intra-oral suction during swallowing, i.e., the negative pressure that occurs prior to the actual swallow to move the contents to the tongue.  It’s apparently quite difficult to prove, study, and measure intra-oral suction.  No doubt because it happens behind closed lips and it’s abstract. 


The terms intra-oral suction and intra-oral pressure mean two different things.  When researchers site “pressures” they mean lingual pressure, i.e., lingual contact on or against teeth, hard palate, soft palate, etc.
