How is tongue/lip tie fixed?
If tongue and /or lip tie is found during your examination, a referral will be made to the appropriate health care provider for a release. Most people get along very well with this short, in-office surgery.
Daily exercises are prescribed following a frenectomy to keep the scar tissue from binding the tongue back down. The formation of scar tissue can be just as debilitating as the tongue tie. Exercising should be started no later than 3 days after surgery.
