My six year old was diagnosed as being tongue tied in the Spring. This means that the muscle under his tongue is too long or some people's could be too short. Anyway, he cannot say the "th" sound because his tongue cannot touch the roof of his mouth. The muscle also pulls on the gums and causes gum recession if not corrected.The frenectomy requires that my kid get general anesthesia and that scares me to death.
He already has so much on his plate with first grade starting and a new baby sister on the way. I just am scared of the worst. Should I wait until he is older to have this done? I was told some people go through life with this problem it is not life or death.
