Treatment of Lip and Tongue-Tie
A tight tongue can lead to issues with breastfeeding, speech, self-cleansing, and gum and bone support for front teeth. It can be easily corrected and allow proper form and function to develop.
Lip-ties tend to lead to painful and slow breastfeeding and later to cavities on the upper front teeth if the tie is tight enough to prevent access for cleansing. It can be easily corrected and allow proper form and function to develop.
