Common Symptoms

A tongue tie can often present with symptoms related to difficulty with nursing.
Limited mobility of tongue can impair formation of a good latch or seal to draw the milk out.

Orange County Lip and Tongue Tie

A tight upper lip frenum can cause a tense upper lip during nursing.
This can result in a shallow latch. It can also trap milk/food in the front teeth possibly leading to dental decay.
