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

Tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, is a condition whereby the lingual frenulum attaches near the tip of the tongue and may be short, tight and thick. Tongue-tie is present in 4% to 11% of newborns. Tongue-...

Breastfeeding difficulty from ankyloglossia can affect both the mother and baby in a breastfeeding dyad. With renewed emphasis in today's culture on breast milk, mothers may feel increasing pressure t...
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.
