Is This a Tongue-Tie: How Do We Decide?
This presentation will discuss the difficulties that surround defining and assessing for tongue-tie.

Various available assessment tools will be described along with how these may assist in differentiating between a normal and abnormal lingual frenulum. Also discussed will be other causes of tongue restriction and how to differentiate these from an abnormal lingual frenulum.
