Tongue-Tie and Palate Evaluation Procedures

Tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, can significantly impact an individual’s ability to speak, eat/nurse, swallow, breathe properly as well as impair proper cranial bone growth patterns. Understanding the assessment and management of tongue-tie is essential for healthcare professionals working with patients who may be affected by this condition.

In addition to tongue-tie, the evaluation of the palate plays a vital role in evaluating and treating various speech, breathing, eating, and swallowing disorders. The palate consists of the hard and soft tissues at the roof of the mouth. This course will delve into the techniques and procedures used to assess the structure and function of the palate, enabling you to better evaluate and address issues related to its functioning.

Throughout this course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the tongue and palate, the various types and classifications of tongue-tie, and the impact these conditions can have on function and development. You will also explore specific evaluation techniques that will aid in diagnosing and evaluating and managing tongue-tie and palate-related concerns.
