Fundamentals of Chewing

We chew for several reasons:

  • to break down food so that it can be swallowed (then called bolus)
  • to further the digestive process, mixing the food with saliva
  • to aid the stomach in its function

How we chew can vary:

  • pay attention to how you chew
    • do you chew primarily on one side?
    • are there any dental concerns that you need to take care of that will help you chew better?
    • try chewing with both sides
  • pay attention to the action of the tongue
  • pay attention to the movement of your jaw
  • pay attention to the speed at which you chew

Happy chewing!
