Oropharyngeal dysphagia is frequently accompanied by a decreased gag reflex, weakness of cervical or facial muscles and often a speech disorder. It is a common cause of dysphagia and, if it progresses to pharyngeal paralysis, it may cause sensory changes secondary to painful lesions of the mouth and tongue. Such diseases include scarlet fever, mumps, viral infections, monilia, peritonsillar abscess, carcinoma and syphilis. Pharyngeal paralysis often results from poliomyelitis, multiple sclerosis, cerebrovascular accident (stroke) involving the brain stem or diphtheria affecting the IXth and Xth nerves.

The infantile (or tooth apart) swallow is also characterized by an active tongue thrust. Retention of this immature mode of deglutition may comprise an aetiologic factor of anterior malocclusions, especially the anterior open bite. Tooth apart swallows are, however, normal in adults when fluids or soft foods are consumed. Thus during the process of deglutition the consistency of the food bolus determines whether the teeth will come into occlusion. Central control Although deglutition is reflexly triggered from the periphery, the sequence and timing of the component movements is controlled by the central nervous system.
