Question: Why is tongue strength important?

Tongue strength is also important for creating a sufficiently high pressure within the oral cavity, to reduce the oral and pharyngeal transit time, vallecular residues, and risk of aspiration as a result of improved airway protection.

What does strengthening your tongue do?

What are tongue-strengthening exercises? Tongue-strengthening exercises can help improve your swallowing. With practice, these exercises may help you increase your tongue strength and mobility. This may improve your ability to swallow, especially when used with other types of swallowing exercises.

Does your tongue help you balance?

A device that relays a persons body movements to an array of electrodes on their tongue could help people with balance problems recover their poise, or wheelchair users avoid pressure sores.
