A tethered tongue or tongue tie can significantly negatively impact skeletal growth and development. Our jaws, teeth, and airway all are influenced by pressure from the lips, cheeks, and tongue.
Do you have a tongue tie or does someone you love and care about have a tongue tie? Signs or symptoms can include a history of difficulty with breastfeeding, a history of speech therapy, a history of mouth breathing, snoring, difficulties with feeding and eating, and an open bite. Please come see us if you have any questions or concerns. Orthodontics and skeletal growth and development is our passion and specialty.
