A tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, is a common physical condition which limits the use of the tongue. A lip-tie is a condition where the upper or lower lip cannot be moved properly. When we are born, our frenum, or the attachment in the center of our mouth, is supposed to recede and become thin sometimes this does not happen. It is our priority to get your child the best dental care where full tongue and lip functionality can be restored.
Your child may be experiencing symptoms. These include:
- Problems nursing and feeding
- Challenges with speech and sleeping
- Breathing difficulty
- Problems may even persist into adulthood
The procedure is simple with minimal complications. It only takes a few minutes and a difference in your child’s tongue and lip mobility will be observed immediately. The most important component to the procedure is adequate stretching after treatment. This will help to ensure optimal results from treatment.
