It helps the baby`s mouth and tongue action to develop properly and satisfies
his natural sucking instinct. Research on the Chicco Orthodontic Teat was conducted
by a Scientific Committee comprising Orthodontic University Lecturers. This
work group analysed the scientific results and outlined the most important aspects
to consider regarding the correct way of using soothers, and the characteristics
they should have.
- Palate ridges: These small reliefs on the tip of the teat are a point of reference
for the baby, who places the tip of its tongue in the correct position and pushes it
upwards with the correct pressure while sucking and swallowing.
- Ultra thin profile: The ultra thin profile on the narrow part of the teat helps
the baby to close its mouth correctly, while, in the upper part, the teat is inclined
to suit the natural position of the tongue and the correct pressure on the sides
of the palate.
- Hollow space for the tongue: It distributes the pressure on the palate correctly,
helping its correct development.
