The Faux Tie: When is a Tongue-tie NOT a Tongue-tie?

Time-frame: 60-75
CERP: yes

Has the incidence of tongue-tie increased or are we seeing more cases of “tongue-tie” because of poor differential diagnosis? In this presentation, Dr. Hazelbaker describes the differences between actual tongue-tie and sucking problems that can appear to be tongue-tie due to structural compromises that pull the tongue back in the throat. She provides the conceptual framework for such an occurrence and shows both pictures and video that help the participant grasp the differences between the two thereby enabling him or her to distinguish a true tie from a faux tie in his or her clinical setting.
