Is This a Tongue-Tie: How Do We Decide?
This presentation will discuss the difficulties that surround defining and assessing for tongue-tie. It will explore what we know about the role of the tongue in infant feeding by reviewing evidence from ultrasound studies and other research on latch and examining what this tells us about the normal functioning of the tongue. 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.
