If your newborn doesn’t seem to be eating properly or is unable to take a pacifier, it could be a sign that he or she is suffering from a tongue tie or lip tie.
Inside our mouths, we have pieces of skin called frenums that attach the tongue to the bottom of the mouth and the upper lip to the top the mouth. Tongue tie or lip tie occurs when a baby is born with a tight frenum that prevents them from moving their tongue or lip.
At Beaumont Family Dentistry, we offer a comfortable treatment for tongue and lip tie. The treatment only takes a minute and uses a high-tech dental laser to ensure precision and comfort.
