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

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.
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...
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...
To evaluate the effectiveness of Lingual Ring Splint For Management of Anterior Disc Displacement With Reduction
Posterior crossbite is a common clinical condition often associated with transverse maxillary deficiency and functional mandibular shift. This frequent malocclusion is not self-correcting ...
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-...
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) may have potential as a treatment for muscle weakness as it may improve strength when applied to the orofacial muscles. However, before incorporating this p...
The aim of this study was to evaluate force levels exerted by levelling arch wires with labial and lingual conventional and self-ligating brackets.
Measurement of forces and moments around the maxillary arch for treatment of a simulated lingual incisor and high canine malocclusion using straight and mushroom archwires in fixed lingual appliances.
An Orthodontic SIMulator (OSIM) was used to investigate the propagation of forces and moments around a simulated archform for a gingival displaced canine and lingual displaced lateral incisor using fi...
Alterations of the lingual frenulum may contribute to oromyofacial dysfunction, speech and swallowing impediments, underdevelopment of the maxillofacial skeleton, and even predispose to sleep breathin...
A severe congenital restriction of TONGUE movement, resulting from fusion or adherence of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. In partial ankyloglossia (tongue-tie) the LINGUAL FRENUM is abnormally short, or is attached too close to the tip of the tongue. OMIM: 106280
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. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p690)
Training or retraining of the buccal, facial, labial, and lingual musculature in toothless conditions; DEGLUTITION DISORDERS; TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS; MALOCCLUSION; and ARTICULATION DISORDERS.
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.
