Tongue Tie – Dr. Chelsea Pinto
A tongue tie occurs when the thin membrane under the tongue restricts the movement of the tongue. For approximately 3-15% of newborns, it is so tight that they cannot move their tongues freely which can affect their ability to breastfeed and lead to poor latch, nipple pain, and trauma, decreased milk intake and a decline in milk supply over time. Dr. Chelsea Pinto, a mom, laser-certified dentist and member of the International Affiliation of Tongue Tie Professionals, explains what tongue tie and lip tie are, how they can be diagnosed and various forms of treatment.
