Lip or tongue-tie problems can make breastfeeding, chewing, swallowing, and speech difficult.

Even more importantly it can lead to severe problems with craniofacial growth and development that dramatically increases a child’s risk of TMD/TMJ, sleep apnea, poor head and neck posture, upper cervical neck and shoulder pain, and facial pain. Tongue ties and mouth breathing also contribute to poor facial aesthetics such as a retruded chin, elongated face, narrow dental arches, crooked teeth, and asymmetry in the jaw, smile, and eyes. Adults with these issues are also more likely to have future dental issues such as bruxism (grinding), cavities and gum infection.

A child with a tongue tie is being robbed of the ability to grow up with the health and beauty they deserve. If you have concerns for your child, contact us for an evaluation.
