Adult with Tongue-Tie Treatment Experience

Date: February 5, 2018 Author: admin Categories: Uncategorized

Many adults are seen with restricted lingual frenum (tongue-tie) and benefit tremendously from a revision. The issues adults have are generally different than those of children. They tend to have tension in their facial muscles, leading to jaw tension and TMJ dysfunction.  They may have distorted speech, sleep disordered breathing (SDB), neck and shoulder tension, facial pain or voice strain that also results in a voice disorder.
