Anterior Lingual Frenectomy is Inadequate in Improving Breastfeeding Outcomes: a Prospective Cohort Study

2016-10-19 02:38:21 | BioPortfolio


A previously published study ( 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

Frenotomy for tongue-tie in newborn infants.

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-...

Association Between Increased Concavity of Maxillary Labial Alveolar Bone and Decreased Labial Cortical Bone Thickness: A Cone Beam Computed Tomography Aided Retrospective Cohort Study.

To assess whether an increased concavity of maxillary labial alveolar bone is related to labial thickness of cortical bone in that area and to the presence of extraoral manifestations in the philtrum.

Comparison of the force levels among labial and lingual self-ligating and conventional brackets in simulated misaligned teeth.

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...

Ankyloglossia in Infancy: An Indian Experience.

To study the prevalence, clinical presentation and management of infants with ankyloglossia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
