Tongue Tie

(Ankloglossia) is a condition that  restricts range of motion due to a short or tight band of tissue called the lingual frenum. The tissue anchors the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Tongue-ties vary in severity, with some having very limited movement and others only slightly reduced. This restricted movement causes poor muscle function. The following issues may occur as a result of poor muscle function:  feeding issues and improper swallowing, speech challenges, mouth breathing, inability to clean teeth resulting in decay

If a tongue-tie is left untreated it makes it difficult if not impossible to learn the proper swallowing pattern. Without swallowing properly, a person can have many digestive concerns including stomach aches, hiccups, belching, and acid reflux to name a few.
