It is not unheard of for tongue tie or lip tie to go undiagnosed or treated until adulthood. Problems did not surface during infancy or childhood, or if they did, were left untreated. Adults with tongue tie or lip tie may have learned to adapt or simply overlook any issues. Or, in some cases, they live with the restrictions that tongue tie or lip tie can impart to speech, eating, dental development and even restful sleep.

Tongue tie generally runs in families and occurs three times more often in boys than girls. It is caused when the lingual frenulum, a short, tough band of tissue underneath the tongue, grows in such a way that it binds the tongue to the mouth floor and restricts its free movement. This can cause difficulty with eating, sucking liquids through a straw, some sounds we make in speech with certain movements of the tongue and crooked teeth.

Research has also shown that tongue tie or lip tie can also cause poorer sleep, a higher risk of developing sleep apnea and resulting health complications.
