How Ankyloglossia Is Implicated in Congenital Craniofacial Disorders
"Tongue Tie was never mentioned in any of my graduate or post graduate education [for speech language pathology]. They were treated as a separate entity. Current research proves this should not be the case."
PASSWORD: ICAPLIVE. Lynda's presentation covers embryological development of craniofacial disorders and fetal growth retardation versus normal enbryological development
Lynda D'onofrio's presentation about Anklyoglossia, Craniofacial Disorders and Genetics
Conventional learning has been superceded by clinical studies and experience
Lynda D'Onofrio's presentation at the 2018 ICAP conference refutes the idea that there is no relation between tongue tie and craniofacial disorders. Her clinical experience over the years indicates that tongue tie is very important as it concerns these disorders.
The presentation goes into detail about Lynda's experience as well as other clinical studies that show ankyloglossia can co-occur with cleft palate and other facial development issues. Lynda shows studies that between 5 and 15% of patients have TBX22 (CPX) mutations where cleft palate occurs with tongue tie.
Anyone that is interested in learning more about relations between tongue tie and other disorders will not only get a good craniofacial disorder primer but also understand more about trends in the co-existence of tongue tie with these disorders.
