Tongue-tie and behavioral problems

Tongue-tie and behavioral problems

Behavioral problems refer to difficulties with behaviors that disrupt functioning in social, academic, or other areas of life. 

They can take many forms, including aggression, defiance, and attention-seeking behavior.

There is some evidence to suggest that tongue-tie may be associated with behavioral problems, particularly in children.

 For example, a study of children with tongue-tie found that they had significantly higher scores on measures of behavioral problems compared to children without tongue-tie.

 In addition, difficulties with breastfeeding, eating, speaking, and other oral activities associated with tongue-tie may contribute to behavioral problems.

However, it is important to note that tongue-tie and behavioral problems are two separate issues, and more research is needed to understand the nature of this relationship.

 If you or a loved one is experiencing behavioral problems or has been diagnosed with tongue-tie, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for a proper evaluation and treatment.
