  11. 11. James Sim Wallace - 1904• Natural suckling and chewing exercises themuscles of the jaws and tongue.•The tongue stimulates the maxilla, the alveolus andthe teeth during growth.•A lack of spacing in the primary teeth is due to lack ofoutward pressure on the arches by a fully developedtongue.•Without primary spacing, permanent anterior teethwill surely be crowded, and the posterior teeth will beseen to “fall inwards”.11Thursday, June 6, 13
