Tongue-Tie and Palate Evaluation Procedures

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.

In this streaming video 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.

Evaluation Protocols for the Pediatric TMJ

In infants, the proper function of the TMJ influences their ability to nurse or suck correctly and is intricately involved in a myriad of common pediatric problems including: nursing, teething, tongue-tie, colic/digestive issues, head posture, developmental milestones, ear infections and many others. The proper function of the TMJ is also a primary factor in cranio-facial dynamics, proper palatal and cranial bone growth and development, as well as cranial bone motion.

In this video set Dr. Rosen discusses the mechanics of the temperomandibular joint (TMJ), its functional anatomy, and the evaluation protocols necessary to properly and effectively correct imbalances in both the development and function of the jaw, face, and palate and their effects on the cranium.

You will learn a step-by-step process to thoroughly and efficiently evaluate the pediatric TMJ from both a functional and anatomical perspective.

If you would like to become more proficient in evaluating proper TMJ mechanics, help more infants with nursing, latching and digestive issues as well as being able to determine where to start, to improve the temporomandibular joint dysfunction in the pediatric population, this video is for you.
