Tongue Tie Release Dentists Near Me

What is Tongue-Tie?

Tongue-tie is a medical condition, also known as ankyloglossia, in which the thin membrane of tissue connecting the bottom of the tongue to the floor of the mouth (frenulum) is shorter than normal. This can restrict movement of the tongue and cause difficulty with breastfeeding, eating, or speaking. In some cases, it may even affect a child’s overall health which is why we recommend consulting with our pediatric dentists in Okemos, MI.

One of the most common symptoms of tongue-tie is difficulty breastfeeding due to poor latch-on and slow weight gain in babies. Other signs include clicking noises while nursing, lip blisters, as well as problems with speech development.
