Ankyloglossia – more commonly known as tongue tie – is a congenital condition that causes decreased movement of the tongue. Anywhere from  5-10% of the U.S. population is born with tongue tie. The condition can lead to many oral health problems, including:

  • Restricted airway (breathing)

  • Speech issues

  • Breastfeeding pain for mothers

  • Chewing and swallowing problems

Since the condition is so prevalent, you probably know someone – a family member, friend, colleague or acquaintance – that could benefit from tongue tie treatment for their child. One of the most common questions from parents of children with this condition is: “Where can I find a dentist specializing in tongue tie treatment near me?”
 

At Just Kids Pediatric Dentistry, we have the expertise and tools needed to help treat patients that suffer with tongue tie or lip tie. 
 

Tongue-Tie Treatment

The treatment for tongue tie is relatively simple. Our dentists simply snip the lingual frenulum to allow the tongue to move freely. The procedure is completed with sterile scissors or a laser. Since the tissue has minimal nerve endings and blood flow, pain is minimal – and the results of a tongue tie procedure are evident immediately.
