Tongue tie is the improper development of the anchoring of the tongue to the mouth, which results in limited tongue movement. The frenulum, which is what attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth, is too short, too thin, or too tight to allow for proper tongue use.
A tongue-tie can affect both babies as well as adults of all ages. Releasing a tongue-tie is now an integral part of achieving optimal oral and dental health.
A tongue-tie is treated surgically with a procedure called a frenectomy. It’s simple, fast, and painless. We use a laser, which releases the frenulum attachment, and should only take a few minutes. The results are permanent and can also be life changing!
