What We Offer

"What is tongue tie?" you may ask. It is a problem that can lead to a range of issues, but we are equipped to solve them!

What is Tongue Tie?

Tongue ties happen when tethered oral tissue restricts the movement of the tongue, which can happen at any stage of life, whether in infants, children, or adults.

Our approach towards treating a tethered oral tissue is one of collaboration with other health care providers to allow for a comprehensive team-based care towards yours or your child’s health. By working alongside other providers, we can strive towards better, healthier, and stable outcomes. Depending on the age of the patient, our team could potentially consist of working with an IBCLC, a body worker such as a chiropractor and/or a CST, Speech Language Pathologist (SLP), an Oral-Myofunctional Therapist (OMT), Orthodontist, ENT, Sleep Physician, among others.
