Impact of Tethered Oral Tissues on the Fascial System
What are tethered oral tissues and what is the role of fascia? Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place. How is the fascial system connected to TOTS? The condition of tongue-tie and lip-tie exists on a continuum with variable visibility and symptoms differently across the body through different age groups. Some restrictions, mainly anterior or “classic” tongue tie, are highly visible and easier to detect. However, “posterior” or submucosal tongue-ties are often more challenging to diagnose. Through this session, we will explore a detailed dissection of what is fascia and how the concept of tongue ties has evolved and changed with the role of fascia and its impacts with TOTS. It takes a village of specialists to treat this challenging problem. We will learn how we can help prevent a vicious circle of problems if treated early with a holistic integrative approach.
