What Is Tongue Tie?
Tongue-tie is a fairly common occurrence that is best treated as early as possible to encourage necessary behaviors for swallowing and breathing during early development. Most of the time, these anatomical difficulties are discovered in infants that have issues breastfeeding. A tongue-tie may be adjusted with a tongue tie release by an oral physician.
Dr. Coleman and Dr. Dastrup at Dentistry Elevated in Davidson, North Carolina, have experience diagnosing and treating tongue and lip ties, providing expert care for all of their patients.
If a tongue tie is determined to be severe, we will perform a tongue tie release called a frenotomy functional frenuloplasty. This simple procedure involves a small incision or snipping off the front band that anchors the tongue to the floor of the mouth (lingual frenulum). The release is performed in-office, and you can expect minimal discomfort.
