Almost everyone has heard of the Tooth Fairy but not many people have heard of the Tongue fairy. In our story, the Tooth Fairy's name is Flossia and the tongue Fairy's name is Glossia.
Long ago and far away, there lived cousins who lived inside of a house. This house is the face!
The Tooth Fairy takes care of the pretty white teeth and the Tongue Fairy is the guardian of the strong, pink tongue. They work together to create a happy home for the parts of the Face that is the home for the 5 Face Dwarves whose names are as Eating, Drinking, Breathing, Talking and Smiling.
The Tongue Fairy and the Tooth Fairy work together to make a happy home for the 5 Dwarves.
The Tongue Fairy needs your help! By having fun and doing your Magic Motions, Funny Functions and Silly Sounds, the Tongue Fairy gets the energy and strength that she needs to make a happy FACE!
The Tongue Fairy can use all of the help that she can get to help the tongue to do what it is supposed to do.
The Magic Wand known as the ALF appliance helps the tongue to remember how to do its job. It is a delicate little wire with a big, important job. The ALF guides the tongue into the perfect place to allow the tongue to do the job of perfectly living in the Face. No other dental device works as well to gently guide the tongue and arrange the teeth to create a big, beautiful smile and healthy, balanced face. The reason that the ALF Magic Wand is so powerful is that it is powered by the tongue!
When you see your tongue fairy, you will remember to do your magic motions and tongue exercises
Wherever you see your tongue fairy hiding, you will remember to have fun and do the playtime exercises.
We need to remember to be silly and have fun. Your tongue fairy loves to hear you make your silly sounds!
Parents are able to recognize the daily achievements with a fun and easy report card that can be created by the oral myofunctional therapist and shared with the dental or orthodontic provider.
We post fun photos and have little parties when we have a great report card brought into our office!
There are many prizes to choose from for those who have great Reward Cards!
Parents and kids have always searched for ways to reward good behavior . Parents often need helpers.
Throughout the years, we have enjoyed the fun and creative support from Elf of a Shelf. The Tongue Fairy is another very helpful friend of the parent trying to help their kids have better oral function.
The Tongue Fairy is placed throughout the house, cars and anywhere you travel to encourage the child to do their magic motions, funny functions and silly sounds as carefully directed by your therapy team. The Reward Card is maintained by the parent and brought with the child to their therapy and dental/orthodontic appointments to allow them to choose prizes and receive public support with the office celebration station.
