Lip Tie and Potential Causes:

A lip tie is a condition that occurs when a newborn has a little piece of tissue connecting the upper lip to the upper gum. It results in functional difficulties in the kid’s mouth, limited movement, and other oral health complications.

In addition, the piece of tissue prevents the lip from flanging out during feeding sessions and affects their nourishment and growth. Research reveals that lip and tongue ties are associated with improper jaw development and adult tooth placements.

If you notice changes in your kid’s feeding habits, visit a pediatric dentist. Moreover, keep an eye on the following signs and symptoms of tongue and lip tie:

  • Clicking noise
  • Jaundice
  • Cluster feeding
  • Difficulty in latching 
  • Unsatisfactory weight lose
  • Spluttering
  • Face movements
  • Speech issues

For the newborn lip tie, the mothers also experience discomfort during feeding. So, for any difficulty, mothers must consult with the physicians to look for the actual cause.

Lip tie and oral health complications:

Lip tie is an issue that is linked to tooth decay and damage to the gum line. It makes the child’s oral hygiene difficult and requires recovery treatment. An untreated lip tie can lead to gum recession, misalignment and other oral issues in kids.

Moreover, lip tie, if ignored in the beginning, can lead to issues later in life. From feeding issues at the early stage to the gum recession, it also affects the alignment and bite size. So, it is advisable to look for the signs and symptoms of tongue or lip tie and consult with a physician or dentist as soon as possible.
