As a parent and a practitioner, my goal is to educate and guide parents into making the decisions that are aligned with their parenting goals. I think it is important that families understand the different perspectives on tongue ties and where they originate from. I desire to optimize the health and functionality of my patients and I believe that optimal tongue function is paramount for our children.
Prior to and after having a lingual frenectomy procedure performed (tongue tie release), it is important to perform exercises to help strengthen the tongue muscle and build oral awareness. This video demonstrates exercises to be performed 3-4 weeks prior to the procedure and for 1 week after the procedure.
