Tongue Tie Procedures for Babies

What is Tongue Tie?

Tongue tie, also known as ankyloglossia, is a congenital condition that restricts the range of motion of the tongue. It occurs when the strip of skin beneath the tongue (lingual frenulum) is shorter than usual. This condition can affect various aspects of one's life, from breastfeeding difficulties in infants to speech and dental issues in older children and adults.

We offer a comprehensive approach to addressing tongue tie concerns. Our goal is to provide individualized care that ensures optimal outcomes for our patients. Here's what you can expect:

Evaluation and Diagnosis

Our experienced healthcare professionals will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if a tongue tie procedure is necessary. We consider your unique circumstances and any associated symptoms, such as difficulty with breastfeeding, speech challenges, or dental concerns.

Tongue Tie Procedures

We offer a range of tongue tie procedures, including:

  • Frenotomy: This is a simple and quick procedure where we release the frenulum using sterile instruments. It is often performed on infants and children to improve feeding and speech difficulties.

  • Frenuloplasty: In some cases, a more extensive release of the frenulum may be required, especially in adults. Frenuloplasty is a minor surgical procedure that offers lasting relief.
