This sensation pulls the tongue toward the upper palate and the soft palate forward. Here are some tips you can use to reach effective negative pressure. With the oral interface in place:
- First keep your tongue at the bottom of your mouth, keeping the largest cavity inside your mouth with your lips sealed around the interface. You will feel the pull from the pressure, try to resist it for 3 to 5 seconds.
Them let your tongue be moved to the upper palate and forwarded position, behind your top front teeth by the vacuum.
