Abstract:

When it comes to addressing tongue-ties in medicine and dentistry, there is a large emphasis on treating infants in order to achieve optimal breastfeeding. But what happens to the babies who grow into children and adults without addressing their tethered oral tissues, and they end up as adults with tongue-ties? This presentation will discuss the challenges and symptoms that tongue-tied adults face later in life due to restricted lingual frenums. Knowledge of long-term implications is an important part of clinical teaching when explaining tongue-tie to caregivers or colleagues.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe how tongue-ties impact sleep and breathing
2. Explain how tongue-ties impact our orofacial structures and craniofacial development
3. Describe how tongue-ties impact our soft tissue function
