What is a Shortened Tongue-Tie?

A tongue-tie relates to the lingual frenulum, a small fold of skin attached from the underside of the tongue to the bottom of the jaw or palate. A shortened tongue-tie, where the frenulum has attached a greater section of the tongue to the palate, can negatively affect the function and capabilities of the tongue, mouth and jaw. Shortened tongue-tie can affect speech, breastfeeding, jaw mobility and more.

Why Remove the Tongue-Tie?

A short tongue-tie prevents proper placement of the tongue and may inhibit optimal jaw development in the future. Silverback Chiropractic is qualified to diagnose tongue-tie; however, there are signs of a shortened tongue-tie that you can look out for.

Signs of shortened tongue-tie:

  • Difficulty breathing or mouth breathing
  • Breastfeeding issues
  • Chronic illnesses
  • Excessive salivating
  • Reflux
  • Colic
  • Snoring / sleep apnoea
  • Speech issues
