For The Treatment Of Tongue Tie In Infants Should See A Pediatrician Or Surgery?
Good night..I want to ask for the case of handling tongue tie in infants must go to a poly child or a poly surgery? Thanks before..
Tounge tie is a condition of the tongue frenulum (the thin section under the tongue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth) is too short so that the tongue is not free to move. This condition can cause difficulty in breastfeeding, interference when eating, and interference when talking.
If your child experiences a tounge tie, you can have your child checked by a pediatrician first. The doctor will do an examination to determine the condition of your child's tongue and determine the appropriate treatment.
Handling a tounge tie can be done by a frenotomy by a pediatrician, or if needed, a pediatrician can refer to the surgical department for frenuloplasty.
Hope it helps you,
