Anticipatory care plays an essential role in achieving desirable outcomes after the revision of tethered oral tissues. Tethered oral tissues are a common and underdiagnosed problem that impacts potentially 10% of the United States population. Lack of a universally accepted approach to diagnosis, treatment, and management creates confusion for the public and prohibits optimal care. This lecture dissects current research, trends, and information to present a deeper connection between oral function and anatomy during breastfeeding and tethered oral tissue revision management. Discover the interdisciplinary approach to restoring a functional and healthy breastfeeding relationship to the dyad and the critical importance of setting families up for success by providing adequate anticipatory care and guidance prior to revision.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the relationship between tethered oral tissues and associated impacts on the breastfeeding dyad.

2. Describe the essential role anticipatory care has on achieving desirable outcomes for improving oral function for breastfeeding.

3. List members of the interdisciplinary team for post revision active wound management and rehabilitation.

4. Describe complications of poor active wound management and understand the difference between reattachment and suboptimal wound healing.
