While swallowing, the pressure exerted against the anterior teeth by the tongue is estimated to be 500 gms, while the force required to move a tooth is as small as 1.7gm.5

We swallow an estimated 2,000 times per day, and each time we swallow, the tongue pushes upwards and flattens in the roof of the mouth, exerting a considerable force that shapes the jaws. The correct position of the tongue is resting in the roof of the mouth. As the child grows, the top jaw forms around the tongue. In other words, the shape of the top jaw is the shape of the tongue. As the tongue is U-shaped, it results in a broad facial structure with sufficient room to house all teeth. Nature dictates that the shape of the lower jaw will follow that of the top jaw.

When the mouth is open, the tongue cannot rest in the roof of the mouth, resulting in a poorer developed, narrow, V-shaped top jaw. A smaller top jaw leads to a narrow facial structure and overcrowding of the teeth. Low tongue posture seen with oral respiration (mouth breathing) impedes the lateral expansion and anterior development of the maxilla (top jaw).

but when you swallow does your tongue push against the roof of your mouth?
its the tongue that is the most important factor here, you can mouth breath and still develop a normal face providing your tongue does exert pressure against the roof of the mouth

is your chin recessed?
