We encourage infants and young children feeding difficulties have a full functional assessment with a lactation consultant or feeding specialist prior to consultation. We understand in some areas there is limited access to this expertise. Other times, there may be conflicting information by given by professionals due to varying degrees of awareness . For this option , we offer the option of consultation without a referral.
Sparkle Dental offers the option of the procedure on the day of consultation for infants with breastfeeding difficulties.
We offer assessment and consultation for children between 9 months and 5 years of age, although we do not do releases for this age group. We strongly encourage functional assessment by either a lactation consultant or speech/feeding specialist with expertise in tongue-ties to assess feeding and speech prior to maximise the value of your appointment. If you have concerns with snoring or pauses in breathing during sleep, Dr Lim can offer direct referral to a paediatric Ear Nose Throat specialist.
Older children and adults will require assessment and consultation regarding Myofunctional Therapy if release is indicated. Release will not be booked on the day.
We can help with:
Infants with breastfeeding difficulties or reflux
Children (ages 5 and above) when there are concerns with speech, facial growth, orthodontic problems or poor sleep breathing
Adults with snoring or obstructive sleep apnoea, and some instances of chronic head, neck and shoulder pain
