Division of Tongue Tie for Feeding Problems

Some babies are born with a tongue tie (which has the medical name ankyloglossia). In this condition the fold of skin under the tongue that connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth is shorter than usual and this restricts the movement of the tongue. The condition may be mild or it can be severe with the tongue being joined to the bottom of the mouth.
