Most of us think of tongue-tie as a situation we find ourselves in when we are too excited to talk. In reality, tongue-tie is the non-medical term for a quite ordinary physical situation that limits the use of the tongue, ankyloglossia. The tongue is one of the mainly important muscles for talking and swallowing. For this reason having tongue-tie can lead to eating or speech troubles, which may be serious in some persons. When we are born, a strong cord of tissue that guides growth of mouth structures is positioned in the center of the mouth. It is called a frenulum. After birth, the lingual frenulum continues to guide the position of incoming teeth. As we grow, it thins and recedes. This frenulum is visible and easily felt if you look in the mirror below your tongue. In some kids, the frenulum is especially tight or fails to move away and may cause tongue mobility troubles. At Integrity Dental we offer Tongue tie release treatment using laser release. The laser offers a quick, accurate and painless process suitable for any age.
