Assessment and Revision of Lip and Tongue Ties

Lip ties and tongue ties not only interfere with feeding infants but can also contribute to airway issues, malocclusions and speech defects.Early assessment and treatment can help new mothers and their babies enjoy the wonderful bond of breast-feeding and decreased symptoms of gas and colic.

The tongue is the architect of the mouth and if left untreated, tethered tissues can negatively impact the growth and development of the pallet and contribute to snoring and sleep apnea along with the inability to form certain letters for speech and the need for orthodontic correction later in life.
