Lesion of the Tongue
  • Attempting lateral lick - 1/2 tongue lifts showing frenum and a lesion. Lateral lick, tongue flips over in a bizarre movement, salivary profusion.[tonguetie.net]

Small Teeth
  • After the intraoral assessment was carried out, a diagnosis was made of a localized gingivitis associated with plaque and presence of an elongated papillary frenum, giving the appearance of short or small teeth.[scielo.conicyt.cl]
Speech Disorders
  • Though the ankyloglossia or tongue tie is not a serious manifestation, it may lead to a host of problems including infant feeding difficulties, speech disorders, and various mechanical and social issues related to the inability of the tongue to protrude[jidonline.com]
  • It is considered anomalous when an increased volume is present, causing undesirable clinical conditions, decreased lip mobility, and speech disorders [ 2 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In addition, the authors also state that it is uncertain as to which patients will have a speech disorder that can be linked to ankyloglossia and that there is no way to predict at a young age which patients will need treatment.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • In children, ankyloglossia can lead to breastfeeding difficulties, speech disorders, poor oral hygiene and bullying during childhood and adolescence 30.[scielo.br]
Dysarthria
  • As a result of limited tongue mobility, ankylogossia can cause difficulty in speech articulation, dyspnea, dysarthria and problems with breastfeeding in babies [3,9,10]. This condition can be self-limiting and most cases resolve spontaneously.[symbiosisonlinepublishing.com]
Apraxia
  • ., Childhood Apraxia of Speech) and muscle-based speech sound disorders often present in OMD is critical.[asha.org]
Sleep Disturbance
  • Tongue ties can result in some of the following developmental problems: Poor breastfeeding- Insufficient weight gain due to malnourishment Sleep disturbances Nipple pain for mothers Abnormal swallowing patterns- Orthodontic problems occur such as an open[drjimmychan.ca]

Workup

  • The patient was evaluated for a possible bleeding disorder, but the workup was negative. A head CT, skeletal survey, and eye examination detected no other signs of physical abuse.[mydigimag.rrd.com]
  • A chronic hyponasal voice quality suggests the presence of an upper airway interference and the need for ENT and allergy workup. See ASHA’s Practice Portal page on Speech Sound Disorders-Articulation and Phonology for more information.[asha.org]

  • OPTIONS: Before the practitioner can determine the optimal treatment, he or she must consider the contributing factors.[jemds.com]
  • Eastanollee Soft Tissue Laser Treatment Soft tissue laser treatments are essential to preventive dental care, as they are an excellent alternative to cutting and contouring.[lowerydental.com]
  • Laser dentistry can be used to provide frenectomy treatment for tongue- or lip-ties.[smokerisedental.com]

Prognosis

  • NEW content on prognosis includes information on the effectiveness of periodontal therapy, bringing together the data supporting maintenance therapy for prevention of tooth loss and attachment loss. NEW![books.google.de]
  • Time since injury- Avulsion (complete displacement of tooth from its socket) of a permanent tooth is a dental emergency requiring urgent replacement into socket with prognosis is dependent on how swiftly the tooth is reimplanted.[rch.org.au]
  • It has been described that the use of intraoral laser in these surgical procedures improves the prognosis [ 3 Medeiros Júnior R, Gueiros LA, Silva IH, et al. Labial frenectomy with Nd:YAG laser and conventional surgery: a comparative study.[tandfonline.com]
  • Individual prognosis: It is the prognosis of individual teeth, based upon local and prosthetic/restorative factors that have a direct effect on their prognosis.[periobasics.com]

Etiology

  • This is illustrated by two examples, however, more examples are needed for the complete understanding of the etiology behind frenulae labii, which at present need to receive attention in the dental clinic.[dentalhypotheses.com]
  • Treatment of diastema varies and it requires correct diagnosis of its etiology, and early intervention relevant to the specific etiology.[jemds.com]
  • A labial frenum that is attached close to the gingival margin could be an etiological factor in midline diastema, mucogingival problems, and affect the growth of the alveolar process.[jisponline.com]
  • It is well known, that the primary etiological factor of the mandibular diastema is the thrust exerted by the tongue in the rest position (10).[preventionandresearch.com]
  • A wide range of etiological factors may be responsible for ectopic eruption of the teeth, so their management depends on the correction of the established etiological factor.[jisppd.com]
