The issue of tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is becoming more common in the pediatric population. To address this issue, Dr. Rosen discusses the protocols necessary to evaluate tongue-tie and what effect the different grades of tongue-tie have on the developing child. He also covers the different approaches to correction of the tongue-tie, when surgical intervention is necessary, and when more conservative procedures are appropriate. The correction protocols for the palate are also covered in instances when tongue-tie is present.
In this DVD Dr. Rosen demonstrates the protocols for evaluating the palate and its relationship to cranial mechanics and tongue-tie. Determining proper palate anatomy and physiology is crucial to evaluating the proper function of the entire cranium. Understanding palatal mechanics and anatomy allows the practitioner to determine how the cranial sutural and dural meningeal system is working. The effect of the palatine and maxillary bones on cranial bone growth, functional issues (i.e. nursing, feeding and speech) and the neurological development of the child are of paramount importance. Correction protocols for specific palate distortions are demonstrated as well as how these distortions affect the rest of the cranium.
