Tongue-Ties and Sleep Issues (and More!) – Article Review
Richard Baxter, DMD, DABLS, has composed a wonderful new article titled “Tongue-Ties and Sleep Issues (and More!)“. The article introduces what a tongue-tie is and how it can negatively affect patients’ sleep and overall health from infant through adult. Dr. Baxter then goes on to present a case report of a nine-year-old autistic male patient who had trouble with speech, feeding, sleep, and reflux. After a thorough examination Dr. Baxter performed a CO2 laser frenectomy on the child.
“It is fascinating that a hidden string can have such a dramatic impact on human physiology and quality of life.” – Dr. Richard Baxter
