Tongue Tie (as defined by wikipedia!)
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. 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.
