A previously published study (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27641715) identified breastfeeding improvements following lingual frenotomy and/or maxillary labial frenectomy. In the previous cohort, babies were excluded from the study if they had previously undergone an attempted frenotomy prior to seeing the P.I. in the office. The proposed study will only look at those babies who did undergo a previous frenotomy to determine:
1. the presence of continued problematic breastfeeding symptoms
2. if further tongue tie or lip tie release improves those outcomes
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Lingual frenotomy and/or maxillary labial frenectomy
Active, not recruiting

This study is an observational study to determine outcomes of surgical release of tongue-tie and lip-tie in babies who are experiencing difficulty with breastfeeding.
Upper lingual frenulum have been implicated as a cause for pain during breastfeeding and latch problems. The investigators hypothesize that performing frenotomy of the frenulum may improve...
The purpose of this study is to determine if frenotomy for ankyloglossia will improve infant breastfeeding, decrease maternal nipple pain and increase duration of breastfeeding with the hy...
Posterior crossbite is a common clinical condition often associated with transverse maxillary deficiency and functional mandibular shift. This frequent malocclusion is not self-correcting ...
The aim of this research was to evaluate the lingual tonsil hypertrophy (LTH) grading of patients with dysphagia using videolaryngoscopy and determine the relation of LTH grades to sociode...
Skeletal anchorage-assisted upper molar distalization has become one of the standard treatment modalities for the correction of Class II malocclusion. The purpose of this study was to analyze maxillar...
Soft tissue augmentation procedures are often performed to correct mucosal recession on the facial aspect following implant restoration in the esthetic zone. This case report illustrates a novel appro...
In this article, I describe a previously unreported maxillary lateral incisor defect (MLID) of the enamel in great apes and evaluate potential general causes (genetic, systemic stress, or localized di...
Reconstruction of maxillary defects following tumor extirpation is challenging because of combined aesthetic and functional roles of the maxilla. One-stage reconstruction combining osseous free flaps ...
The purpose of this case report is to demonstrate surgical technique of only functional but symptomatic lingual thyroid gland transposition to submandibular region by transoral approach without mandib...
The part of a tooth from the neck to the apex, embedded in the alveolar process and covered with cementum. A root may be single or divided into several branches, usually identified by their relative position, e.g., lingual root or buccal root. Single-rooted teeth include mandibular first and second premolars and the maxillary second premolar teeth. The maxillary first premolar has two roots in most cases. Maxillary molars have three roots.

The air space located in the body of the MAXILLARY BONE near each cheek. Each maxillary sinus communicates with the middle passage (meatus) of the NASAL CAVITY on the same side.
A complete denture replacing all the natural maxillary teeth and associated maxillary structures. It is completely supported by the oral tissue and underlying maxillary bone.
