Tongue Tie Symptoms & Solutions

Solutions for Children and Adults

Tongue ties might not always be readily diagnosed. Difficulties in breastfeeding for mothers or unexplained symptoms in adults, such as neck and back pain, could indicate a tongue tie. Colorado Tongue Tie is committed to providing considerate care for patients of all ages affected by this issue.

What is a Tongue Tie?

A tongue tie occurs when the lingual frenulum, connecting the tongue to the mouth's floor, is unusually thick or short. This can hinder tongue movement, affecting breastfeeding in infants and potentially leading to oral issues like speech difficulties, neck and back pain, and TMD in adults. Colorado Tongue Tie provides treatments to help manage this condition.

Signs of a Tongue Tie in Infancy

Infants with tongue ties may experience difficulties with latching, weight gain, and maintaining suction while nursing, potentially leading to increased effort during feeding. Additional signs might indicate the presence of a tongue tie in a baby.

  • Making clicking noises during feeds
  • Frequent or very long feeds
  • Vomiting after feeds

Signs of a Tongue Tie in Children and Adults

Tongue ties, sometimes overlooked due to being misconstrued as selective eating in infancy and childhood, may lead to various challenges later in life including but not limited to:

  • Sleep issues- e.g. tossing and turning, grinding the teeth, chronically tired, dark circles under the eyes
  • Breathing issues
  • Neck, back, and shoulder pain

If you're experiencing any of these issues, consider contacting Colorado Tongue Tie for a professional assessment and to explore potential solutions.
