Research Findings on the Short Lingual Frenulum and Reflux
This presentation will look at new research into lingual frenulum restriction and its surgical release to achieve improvement in problems with reflux, breastfeeding and pain for the breastfeeding mother. I will also expand this into restrictive tethered oral tissues (lip-tie, buccal-tie) as a whole, as this was part of my published study into the laser surgical release of restrictive tethered oral tissues on breastfeeding and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Learn more about the impact of surgical release (frenotomy) of tongue- tie, lip-tie, buccal-tie on both reflux and breastfeeding outcomes for the classically recognised anterior tongue-tie and the less obvious (without functional assessment) posterior tongue-tie. Posterior tongue-tie was noted in 71% of the study cohort.
