Lightbulb Oral Habits and tmj, tongue thrust etc

Hi there,
I have been told I have a tongue thrust problem, and that the pressure of my tongue being in the wrong position in my mouth, had probably enhanced pressure on my joints.
Ive always had a slight lisp, and have continued from a young age to swish liquid around in my mouth before I swallowed. But I do remember before I was given a splint for TMJ, that I all of a sudden felt like my tongue was too large for my mouth, and it never felt relaxed.
Then my jaw locked, and the pain started, and I was given a splint for 3 months (that was never monitored) After wearing it for one month, I developed an open bite, that was over year and half ago, the bite had never closed. And I still have this problem with my tongue always feeling tense and out of place in my mouth, and it now sits through the gap, between my top and bottom teeth.
I spoke to my Orthodontist about this, as I have been told, that if oral habits are not corrected, braces, splints etc, will never work.
He completely dismissed this idea.
Anyone had people talking to them about oral habits
