Abstract: Unraveling Tongue-Tie: Surgical Insights and Lifelong Health Implications

This presentation delves into the nuanced realm of tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) from a personal and professional perspective, offering a comprehensive overview of its management and long-term effects. Drawing on years of clinical experience as a pediatrician, as well as personal reflections, our speaker from Ireland explores the multifaceted approach to tongue-tie care, encompassing surgical techniques, the critical importance of post-surgical functional adaptation, and the mechanics of normal feeding. The discussion extends beyond the procedural to address the broader implications of missed or untreated tongue ties, including potential feeding difficulties, speech issues, and dental problems. By shedding light on these aspects, the talk aims to arm healthcare professionals with the knowledge to make informed decisions in diagnosing and managing tongue-tie, ultimately facilitating improved health outcomes from infancy through adulthood.
