Lip and Tongue Tie Revisions
We are all have our tongues tied to the floor of our mouth, but for some babies it is so tight that they cannot move their tongues properly. This restriction can affect their ability to breastfeed, bottle feed, or take a pacifier. Also, a baby's lips can be attached to the front of the gums, making it difficult to get a good grasp on a nipple. A baby who has been diagnosed with a lip tie almost always also has a tongue tie.
If you think that your baby has an issue with a lip and tongue tie, then you should have him assessed by a trained professional from the list below. If you baby needs a revision, you can choose to have it clipped or lasered. Once your baby has a procedure done, you will need to do daily exercises at home. You can also do Craniosacral Therapy in conjunction with adjustments for children with lip and tongue tie issues both before and after laser revision is done. The therapies help with latching issues and prevents the child from ‘smacking’ while trying to suckle. The therapy prevents the child from taking in air while breastfeeding and helping baby be less gassy, fussy, or developing reflux issues.
