Tongue and Lip Tie Overview
You may be surprised to learn that tongue and lip ties are very common in infants and children. These ties are present at birth and can cause challenges for you and your little one if left undiagnosed. Tongue and lip ties refer to the tightness and length of the skin beneath the tongue and above the upper lip. When diagnosed and treated correctly, these ties can be corrected quickly.
Many parents have come to us after noticing their baby may be struggling with feeding, speech development and weight gain. When you come in to meet with our team, our pediatricians will evaluate your little one to determine if a tongue or lip tie is present, and if so, the severity of that tie. If treatment is needed, rest assured that the experts at Hattiesburg Clinic have a wealth of knowledge and experience treating infants.
