Chances are, you or someone you know is affected by a
tongue-tie.

Common, yet little understood, tongue-ties can lead
to a myriad of problems, including difficulty when nursing, speaking or
eating. In the most crucial and formative parts of children’s lives,
tongue-ties have a significant effect on their well-being. Many parents
and professionals alike want to know what can be done, and how best to
treat these patients and families.
And now, there are answers.

Tongue-Tied: How a Tiny String Under the Tongue Impacts
Nursing, Feeding, Speech, and More
is an exhaustive and informative
guide to this misunderstood affliction. Along with a team of medical
specialists, author Dr. Richard Baxter demystifies tongue-ties and
spells out how this condition can be treated comprehensively, safely and
comfortably.
Starting with a broad history of tongue-ties, this
invaluable guide covers 21st-century assessment techniques and treatment
options available for tethered oral tissues. Various accounts of
patient challenges and victories are prominently featured as well. With
the proper diagnosis and treatment, tethered oral tissues can be
released with minimal discomfort, resulting in lives free of struggles
during nursing, speaking, and feeding, while also reducing the incidence
of dental issues, headaches, and even neck pain for children through
adults.
Aimed at both parents and professionals, Tongue-Tied
encourages those affected while providing reassuring and valuable
information. Dr. Baxter and his qualified team have pooled their
expertise to make a difference in the lives of people. No longer will
young patients and their parents suffer without answers.
Having
examined and treated newborns to adults with oral restrictions since the
early 1980s, I have never seen such a complete and thorough study of
the subject. Dr. Baxter has covered it all! His own personal experience
was a great motivator to make this book a must-read for parents,
physicians, dentists, lactation consultants, and therapists of all
kinds.Greg Notestine, DDS, AAACDPast Director, International Affiliation
of Tongue-Tie Professionals (IATP)There can be no greater feeling than
to see that I have been able to stimulate individuals like Dr. Baxter to
add to the body of knowledge needed to educate the healthcare community
as well as parents on the need to have tethered oral tissues evaluated
for the many potential problems related to the tongue, which is not just
a muscle, but a part of our body that can affect many of the body’s
systems, infant growth and development, speech and much more.
Congratulations on writing this excellent book. Larry Kotlow, DDSPioneer
and Expert on Tethered Oral TissuesTongue-Tied is a revolutionary
resource for parents, patients, and professionals alike. Such a
detailed, comprehensive, and research-based resource has not existed
until now! As a speech-language pathologist and certified orofacial

resource I recommend to my colleagues, patients, and students. Thank you
for filling this gap! Autumn R. Henning, MS, CCC-SLP, COMFounder, TOTS

Great overview of the profound impacts of tongue-ties, and other "tethered oral tissues" (TOTs), as well as treatment options. I appreciate that Dr. Baxter includes some references (and a brief chapter) on the effects of TOTs on adults, as well as babies and children (he's a pediatric dentist). I do wish there were more resources for adults out there, however!

I read this book after seeking out Dr. Baxter's care in treating my son's tongue tie.
Written by several people who are each professionals in their fields, what I imagine must be every aspect of tongue ties is at least touched on, if not thoroughly explained. The information is presented in a very accessible and easily understood voice, and is heavily referenced. Each chapter is concluded with the relevant research and there are ample case studies provided.

This book helped me better understand my son's tongue tie, the procedure to release it and what to expect for aftercare. It helped me confirm that releasing his tie was the right decision for us. I highly recommend this book for anyone who suspects their child's (or their spouse's or their own) life could be affected by an oral tie, but it is absolutely a MUST READ for midwives, pediatricians, ENTs, dentists, lactation consultants, and all manner of medical professionals. Having my son's tongue tie revised took my nursing pain from a 9/10 to a zero and absolutely saved our breastfeeding relationship (not to mention any potential future problems we may have avoided). Any medical provider that is not up to date on the latest oral ties research, methods of diagnoses and best practices is doing a disservice to your patients and reading this book is a great start in the right direction. ...more

I read most of this, but skimmed some sections that seemed mostly written for providers. This book was was helpful after being told by my pediatrician that "no research on tongue-ties exits," and that the growing awareness is just a fad. While research is still limited, particularly on the effects that go beyond baby/childhood nursing, eating, and speech development, I found this book very clear, informative, and straightforward.

While research is still limited, particularly on the effects that go beyond baby/childhood nursing, eating, and speech development, I found this book very clear, informative, and straightforward. The authors rely heavily on existing research along with some anecdotal evidence, and actively seek to contribute to such research. As happens when practitioners have a soap-box, it feels like they can get carried away sometimes, relating many issues to their pet topic (to the point that it feels excessive), but that is to be expected. Additionally, the formatting of the book was mostly helpful, but the contributions from multiple authors made it seem redundant in places.

All that said, this book was helpful for me in making a decision about my daughter's tongue-tie and how it could affect her current and future quality of life, particularly in view of family medical history. ...more

I wish that I had this book back when my son was a baby. Even though I have educated myself quite a bit about tongue ties and their effects, I found this book to be wealth of information. I liked the format where the authors would explain the theory then give an overview of the research. I liked that the pointed to areas where further research would be helpful. Even though the book was at least written in part of practitioners, I found it accessible and easy to understand. I didn't get bogged I wish that I had this book back when my son was a baby.

Excellent and thorough on current thoughts about tongue tie. Several conclusions are made without lots of research behind them, but there is still a lack of research in this field, so he really did his best to find everything that exists and also covers best practices and clinical observation of the tongue tie community.

Good reference book for healthcare professionals from all walks of life. A much overlooked reason for concern, tongue release procedures are a simple fix that can dramatically change lives.

I have a tongue-tie as does my husband and daughter and son. This book was very helpful and informative. Most people who have posterior tongue-ties (like we do) don't even know they have one.

Excellent Information

There was so much information. It really opened me up to so many new things and made me think about all 3 of my kids, myself and my niece. The nice thing is that it is geared towards both parents and professionals.
There afd a lot of wonderful resources that are relevant for parent and professional.
