Tongue Tie Treatment
“I use an adaption from the lingual frenulum protocol (Marchesan 2014) for my screening of the lingual frenum.
I look at 3 general tests. The difference in mouth opening with and without tongue tip to the incisive papilla (not suctioned), alterations to the shape of the tongue during elevation, and the frenulum fixation.
I then look at several functional tests (Tongue mobility, tongue protrusion, and tongue lateralization) and evaluate how you feel when you're moving your tongue through those motions.”
