Tongue tie or ankyloglossia takes place when there is an occurrence of an abnormal band of thick tissue holding your tongue to the floor of mouth thus, restricting its free movement.
When you lift the upper lip and find out the band of connective tissue to be tight, ultimately leading the gums to turn white, it is a lip tie problem. It can cause speech difficulties and air ingestion while infant is feeding.
In case of a tongue or a lip tie, we would recommend you to visit us with your child instantly. Either laser treatment or manually our specialist can eliminate the problem. Procedure is considered to be almost painless with very little bleeding, if any. Your child may feed immediately after the procedure.
