Tongue & Lip Tie
What is a tongue tie?
Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is a condition that restricts the normal mobility and function of the tongue. The frenum is unusually short, thick, or tight and tethers the tongue to the floor of the mouth.
What is a lip tie?
Similarly, a lip tie is a short, thick, or tight frenum that restricts the movement of the lip.
Did you know, most infants have a low-connecting upper lip frenum. A gap between the two front teeth (often up to 10 years of age) is developmentally appropriate! A gap alone does not require a lip tie correction in young children.
