Have you ever thought about getting your tongue-tie released?
We offer screenings for tongue-tie.
We also perform tongue-tie release with a CO2 laser! This extremely safe procedure only takes about 5-10 seconds- and coupled with the appropriate post-stretching exercises, the results can be dramatic, and sometimes even life changing.
By not having proper oral rest posture of our tongue due to it being restricted, potential issues such as mouth breathing, muscle tension, and non-ideal cranio-facial development can occur- among other things.
How do you know if you might be tongue-tied?
Stand in front of the mirror and see how wide you can open your mouth- then place the tip of your tongue to the back of your upper front teeth and see what happens to your lower jaw.
- Do you find yourself closing down significantly?
- Are your neck or jaw muscles straining to make this movement?
- Does your tongue look flat and square when you stick it out?
- Have you noticed other symptoms such as being tired all the time, muscle pain in neck and shoulders, headaches, or not having not good breathing habits?
If so, this could be result of a tongue-tie and a need for Oral Myofunctional therapy, which is also another service we are so happy to provide at our office.
The road to better health often involves a multi-disciplinary approach. I think some major causes of good health are healthy eating and establishing good breathing habits.
