Attached upper lip frenulum....surgery? update with pics in reply
So I found out both of my kids have an attached upper lip frenulum. I found it by chance on dstrying to see if his upper tooth had came through yet. He is 10 months. Neither of my kids would properly latch so I could never breastfeed which upset me greatly. So after finding out about ds I thought to check my dd who is 6. She has the same thing. :/ Now so many things make sense, the breastfeeding, dd's speech delay, the fact neither could hold a pacifier in their mouth. So, now I'm contemplating surgery for dsso he doesn't have the speech issues dd did. Does anyone have a child with this? What did you do? Would you recommend surgery and did it help? Would it be too late to do anything for my dd? Ds has another appt coming up so I was going to talk to his pediatrician but dd just had her check up. Is this something I should see a dr or dentist about?
