I have Tori (sp?) bone growth under my tongue. It causes my tongue to be some 1/2-3/4 of an inch higher in my mouth. This amplifies the problem with my tongue sliding back at night. A devise to hold my tongue in place does no good. Has suffer from this same problem spoke with their dentist or oral surgeon about this same problem? Has your sleep doctor ever looked under your tongue? Does anyone know anything about what type of effective surgery can be done? These continue to grow over the years. In 20 years I am concerned I may not be able to swallow, eat, or have the ability to suck on a straw.
