Signs and Symptoms of Tongue & Lip Ties
Does My Child Need a Frenectomy?
If you think that your child may have tongue or lip ties, a frenectomy may be the right choice for them. In infants, tongue and lip ties usually result in difficulties latching during breastfeeding, excessive drooling, and “gumming” or chewing of the nipple when feeding.
Older kids may have symptoms like trouble eating from a spoon properly or eating finger foods. They may also have trouble pronouncing certain sounds that involve the tongue, like “t”, “d”, “n” and “th,” to name a few.
If you notice these symptoms in your child, come to San Marino Pediatric Dentistry for a consultation with Dr. Choi!
