In place as soon as the intrauterine life, swallowing is perfectly raked at birth. Gradually this primary swallowing gives way to secondary school.
The tip of the tongue rests on the papillae of the anterior part of the palate, the lips and cheeks are motionless and the teeth are tight. During this mechanism, the tongue by its support on the palate helps its good development. At this point, the upper jaw slightly overlaps the lower one.
The transition to an adult swallow is around 3 years old.
