The first-of-its-kind tongue clinic that helps you understand and manage diverse range of health conditions from infant breastfeeding, speech development, mouth breathing tendency with nasal congestion, paediatric to adult obstructive sleep apnea, TMD, maloccusion and misalignment – by uncovering and enhancing tongue strength and functions.

In this digital driven age, now-common lifestyle habits have given rise to health and wellness concerns that are often affecting many parts of the body and it is difficult for healthcare professionals to pin down the root cause of the problems.

We believe that renewal and healing can be wholistically integrated and restored into the heart of everyday life – starting with your tongue functions. Yes, your tongue has the power to transform your way of living. That’s because it is so deeply connected with the way you breathe and live.

Led by international speaker and trainer of myofunctional and multi-disciplinary dentists, Dr. Yue Weng Cheu and Managing Director, Louisa Yue, The Linguadontics Clinic is a first-of-its-kind practice.

Seeking clarity from nature, we understand the functions of the tongue are crucial to suckling, swallowing and breathing right from birth. The reflexes require a tongue-up position to perform these functions well. Low tongue position due to habitual conditioning or physical restrictions like tongue tie will lead to a cascade of health issues. We leverage on latest research, minimally invasive treatment and advanced technologies to enhance wellness through the power of the tongue.

For those of you who are intrigue by the tongue-airway-sleep-TMD connections, welcome to this School of Linguadontics. Linguadontics is a term coined by Dr Yue Weng Cheu, a General Dentist, who has extensive years of treating patients with TMD issues. He uses natural habit changing methods, GNM orthotic with myofunctional therapy, and Invisalign to help his patients. However, he never stopped asking the WHY question. He realised the problem does not start only in adulthood, it has an earlier origin, to the time before we were born. The neurology of breastfeeding gives us the natural reflexes to feed, but also demonstrates the connectivity of our nerves controlling the face, jaw, neck, throat and tongue for breathing, communication and emotion.
The realisation of the various nerve connections helps to explain the directive and supportive functions of the tongue in cranio-facial growth and development and muscles functions. It plays central role in the suck-swallow-breathe reflexes in a tongue-up position. It supports an open airway when it is against the palate. Its helps in proper swallow without abnormal forward thrust. A physical restriction of the tongue or bad habits through conditioning creates low tongue position and that compromises the cardiopulmonary system, especially during sleep and causes compensation, resulting in many of the signs and symptoms. The School of Linguadontics is about starting a movement of bringing greater awareness to this important organ to the medical, dental and allied health community and also the general public

The oral cavity rises to prominence from the very first day of our life. It actually features prominently even as a foetus. We depend on many reflexes to guide us through early growth and development, before our cognitive ability matures. The rooting reflex, suck-swallow-breathe reflexes ensure that we get fed and survive, if not, thrive. The basis of these reflexes are grounded in our nervous systems, with cranial nerves playing instrumental roles in driving these movement ‘simple’ action of the baby turning and latching on to the breast to feed is actually a massive undertaking of multi-department coordination to effect a synchronous action in a split second.
The facial nerve CN VII, trigeminal nerve CN V, glossopharygeal CN IX and vagus nerve CN X, all work together to feed the trigeminal nucleus all the sensory information from the face, including touch-position and pain-temperature. When the infant feels the nipple, it causes the accessory nerve CN XI to turn the head and neck towards the breast. Trigeminal nerve CN V, a massive circuit, gets the jaw working to draw in the milk. That needs the CN VII facial to seal the sides and Hypoglossal CN XII and Glossopharyngeal CN IX, activate and proprioceptively move the tongue to work in rhythmic contractions to press the nipple against the palate to extract the milk from the mother.
