I was just told that my 4 year old is tounge tied and is going to get the flap of skin under his tounge clipped. I was just wondering if any other moms had been through this and how the kids did. I am interested in how the child handled it and what the healing time was like. Thank You.

Quoting Linda:

I am very sorry that i cannot give advice, but the reason why i am writing to you is because i have never ever heard of this. Could you please, when you have a spare moment write back and let me know what this condition is. It is always great to be informed if you don't know about certain things. That is why this site is so fantastic. Good luck with your answers.



when a person is tongue tied the piece of skin that is connected to the bottom of your tongue is not connected at the base of the tongue but at the top so that when the person tries to stick out their tongue it is forked like a snake or not able to stick it out all the way.

My two year old is tongue tied. They have clipped it once and then said that he needs to be put to sleep and have surgery on it. When they clipped it, he cried for a second then forgot about it for the most part unless he ate something that stung it. The doctor told me basically that it is like if you bite the inside of your mouth. It will sting if you eat sour or spicy things but will heal fast. His healed in like two days and it never really bothered it. Hope this helps if you have any more ?'s just ask.
