Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA In this clinical and paraclinical  research carried out in 15 months, 83 individuals were selected among private office patients who were then decreased to 32 after consideration of  some predesigned conditions of the study. 18 male patients of 6-11 yrs and 14 female patients of 5.5-9 yrs were participated in the study. Following scientific evaluations these results were obtained: abnormal size and function of the tongue can cause dentoskeleteal disorders and complications in other anatomical structures and physiological activities of the oral cavity even in absence of any other etiological factor. Neglecting this can lead to failure of orthodontic treatments and can be an important factor causing relapse. Besides, we cannot declare that the tongue volume is whether complementary to the forces or not. In conclusion, increased function because of increased tongue volume and growth can cause dental or dentoskeletal disorders.
