Tongue & Lip Ties
While our offices are in the greater Phoenix area, the resources available on our website may be of use to any parents wondering "What is a tongue tie?", "How does a frenectomy help?", and "What should I do after a frenectomy?".
Please click through to learn more about the signs and symptoms, consult process, procedure, post-procedure exercises, aftercare, and to view photos of patients who have had frenectomy procedures for tongue and/or lip ties.
There are various signs and symptoms of tongue and lip ties. These symptoms can affect infants and breastfeeding parents, as well as older children and adults.
LEARN ABOUT SYMPTOMS
The consult includes a thorough assessment of your child’s health, symptoms, and classification of tongue and lip ties.
ABOUT THE CONSULT
This page has information on the frenectomy procedure, as well as what to expect after the procedure.
THE PROCEDURE AND AFTER
Here you can find forms for tongue/lip tie, lactation, and osteopathic manual medicine appointments. Print and fill them ahead of your appointment to save time.
The aftercare handout is a downloadable PDF that discusses the frenectomy procedure, pain management with dosage chart, and post-procedure exercises.
Our photo gallery shows different sorts of tongue and lip ties, pre- and post- frenectomy. Those squeamish about medical images may not wish to view the gallery!
