1. Is it a problem to perform a Tongue Tie release in close proximity to the date of the brit milah?
No, the sooner a Tongue Tie is treated, the better. The procedure is very small and is usually very well tolerated, the younger the baby, the easier it is. The wound heals very quickly and the baby is possibly a little unsettled for one day. Sometimes the Tongue Tie has to be released around the time of the Circumcision and there are no extra risks by doing so.
2. The baby is only a few days old, is it too early for a Tongue Tie Division?
No, the sooner the Tongue Tie gets revised, the better. As soon as there are feeding difficulties it is advisable to do a full assessment of latch and attchment, tongue and motility. if there is a Tongue Tie present it should be divided
3. My baby has no feeding difficulties but has a Tongue Tie, should we go ahead with the procedure?
After a thorough assessment of the feeding situation and the mouth/tongue and there are really no feeding issues it is really up tp the parents to decide. There are no conclusive data on how many children with Tongue Tie will end up having problems with weaning the baby, orthodontic issues (such as overcrowding) and speech and language problems (such as unclear speech or a lisp),
