Tongue tie is a condition when the lingual frenulum, a tight, short band of tissue, binds the tongue to the mouth floor, restricting full use and movement. It occurs in about 5% of all infants and is three times as likely to occur in boys than girls. Traditional tongue tie release surgery involved sutures or laser surgery in a hospital or surgery center. NYC Tongue Tie offers quick, painless tongue tie and lip tie treatment in NYC at our office in Midtown Manhattan.

Tongue tie/lip tie is most often discovered when newborns have difficulty latching on during breastfeeding. The bridled tongue cannot attain the level of suction necessary. This poses problems for overall nutrition, health and development. Tongue tie and lip tie can also obstruct dental development, speech patterns and even restful sleep.

Tongue Tie/Lip Tie Surgery for Children and Adults

At NYC Tongue Tie, Dr. Gregory Levitin has pioneered a revolutionary tongue tie and lip tie release method that requires only a small amount of local anesthetic, no sutures or laser, is performed right in our office and is pain-free. The entire procedure takes less than 10 minutes, and patients can return home and begin eating and drinking immediately. Follow-up visits are rarely necessary.

Dr. Levitin performs this release procedure for infants, children and adults with equal success. Tongue tie and lip tie release during infancy prevents numerous difficulties with development and other functional issues throughout life. A single, quick procedure can make a huge difference. Children can avoid dental development problems, especially when they require braces or other dental devices. Kids with poor speech patterns can often be objects of ridicule from other children. Tongue tie or lip tie release avoids this negative experience.

Adults who have adapted to problems with speech, eating, sleeping and more for their entire lives can experience a new freedom to give them more self-confidence. Our in-office procedure avoids the costs of a hospital or surgery center visit, an anesthesiologist and prescription medications after surgery. There is no downtime and benefits can be recognized right away.
