The Y-Chew is another great product to assist in oral exploration and to increase movement in the cheek, tongue, lips, and jaw. Use it to develop biting and chewing skills, to decrease oral sensitivities to textures, and to assist in the reduction of teeth grinding. The handle allows for an easy grip, and the extensions on the top part of the "Y" make it easy to reach the upper and lower back molar areas. Each arm has a different texture: one smooth, one ribbed, and one with gentle bumps. Because the Y-Chews are a non-food item, you can avoid the risk of choking while working on feeding skills.
Handle measures 2 ½ inches and the extensions measure 1 ¾ and 1 ½ inches respectively. Each Y-Chew is constructed of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA or latex.
