“Dr Siegel, is there any such thing as ‘waiting’ when considering releasing a tongue-tie and/or a lip-tie on a patient of any age?”
Dr Scott A. Siegel, “In my experience of over 10,000 babies over the past 15 years: knowing what I know, I safely recommend the procedures as preventive. There is such a significant amount of experience by those of us seeing these issues over a lifetime of development and the impacts it has on speech, swallowing, airway growth and development that, in my opinion, we are practicing good medicine by offering a preventive alternative to the ‘wait and see’ approach. I do not like to watch problems develop, I like to prevent them.”
