Tongue-tie

Tongue-tie affects thousands of babies, children, and adults. According to the National Health Service, 11 percent of newborns have this condition. Even with these numbers, there’s very little awareness on tongue-tie. As a matter of fact, there are specialists who do not view this as a serious malady.

Fortunately, there are easy and painless solutions. Dentists and specialists can correct tongue-tie through the following procedures:
