Ankyloglossia, also known as tongue-tie, is a congenital oral anomaly that may decrease mobility of the tongue tip and is caused by an unusually short, thick lingual frenulum, a membrane connecting the underside of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Ankyloglossia varies in degree of severity from mild cases characterized by mucous membrane bands to complete ankyloglossia whereby the tongue is tethered to the floor of the mouth.
Tongue Tie is being linked to difficulty in latching for breastfed babies, and is strongly connected to speech difficulties, digestions problems and food allergies as children get older.
Having the tongue “clipped” is becoming an increasingly popular option.
It’s a very minor procedure, with very, very low incidence of infection, and it’s quick.
However, the challenge comes AFTER the procedure. First, it’s very hard to see a baby, or small child in pain or discomfort. But parents are realizing that Tylenol and other Pharma drugs are tough on the little people. So, there is the challenge of pain management.
And sometimes, the fibrous tissue is very stubborn, and grows back bigger and badder than before.
The care AFTER the procedure is key to a successful outcome. The tongue must be stretched and moved around to prevent re-attachment.
Nobody likes it. There are a LOT of nerve connections in your mouth, and it’s not fun to move this stuff around.
We’ve created something to help get you, and your child through the procedure with a minimum amount of stress and discomfort.
Homeopathic Treatment has been used very effectively, and SAFELY for hundreds of years. Homeopathy is wonderful, but COMPLICATED. There are thousands of remedies, and even experienced Homeopaths get it wrong sometimes.
The challenge with using Homeopathic remedies is that it’s hard to have the RIGHT remedy on hand. And when your child is screaming full blast? It’s really, really hard to think. You’re looking at your little basket of remedy tubes, and you’re not sure which one to use, and you’re not even sure if you have the best potency for the current problem.
As we supply many different health providers, We were given the mandate to package a portable, easy to use, and affordable kit, ESPECIALLY formulated for POST-OP Tongue Tie Revisions.
These were the clinical objectives:
Calm the patient
Close the cut and promote healing
Prevent re-connection of the tongue
Prevent formation of the Hard Scar Tissue.
PLUS: the KIT had to be clearly documented and easily used, even by a frazzled Mama at 4:30am.
We’re very open with the components of the remedies, and they’ve been effective for 200+ years. Much of the development for this KIT was done by Elisabeth Taylor. A very experienced Homeopath that has 15 years of clinical experience with this procedure. Our team at Bestmade worked to bring her work into a physical, and practical kit:
It’s a small box, 4 x 6 x 5 inches. It has six bottles. Labeled Step 1, Step 2, etc. Ships for free!
Our KIT will reduce your stress, and help you get the best possible outcome from your Tongue Tie procedure. But don’t forget to stretch and PULL that tongue~!
All the best to you in GREAT health.
