There is some evidence to suggest that tongue-tie may be associated with lower self-esteem, particularly in children.
For example, a study of children with tongue-tie found that they had significantly lower scores on measures of self-esteem compared to children without tongue-tie.
In addition, difficulties with breastfeeding, eating, speaking, and other oral activities associated with tongue-tie may contribute to lower self-esteem.
However, it is important to note that tongue-tie and self-esteem are two separate issues, and more research is needed to understand the nature of this relationship.
If you or a loved one is experiencing low self-esteem or has been diagnosed with tongue-tie, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for a proper evaluation and treatment.
