What are Lip & Tongue Ties?

A tongue-tie is a condition that limits the use of the tongue, while a lip-tie is a condition where the upper lip cannot be curled or moved normally. In infants, these conditions may interfere with breastfeeding. In children and adolescents, these conditions may affect how a child eats, speaks, and swallows.
