A tongue tie release is just one piece of the pie!

A tongue tie release fixes the anatomy. It does NOT directly fix functional problems, such as trouble feeding, speaking, breathing, or tension in the body. In order to optimize oral function and full body benefit, we need to make sure we are working collaboratively with providers who specialize in those areas.

Remember: Frenectomy is a PROCEDURE. Supporting a patient to gain optimal function is a PROCESS. Frenectomy makes it possible for the tongue to work well, but that doesn't mean that the tongue will automatically know what to do without being taught, especially when it has never used that motor pattern before! Frenectomy should not be a standalone procedure.

If you need support with tongue tie, reach out for help finding someone in your area!
