In the photo above, the appearance of the patient's under tongue and the removed adenoid tissue, 3.5 years old, who underwent adenoidectomy + thermal welding device assisted tongue tie release surgery (frenectomy) operations due to adenoid hypertrophy and tongue tie are seen.

Adenoid hypertrophy, which causes long-term open mouth sleep and nasal congestion, can negatively affect mouth and face development in the long term, just like tongue tie. You can think of it as two unrelated situations, but I would like to simply add the following information.

Correct Tongue Resting Position is Very Important in Babies During The Sleep

"In babies, during sleep, the tongue lies on the roof of the mouth, on the side, in contact with the upper palate. In other words, the tongue acts as an expander, a repulsive muscle organ that shapes the face and jaw bones. When the tongue is attached to the roof of the mouth, mouth breathing becomes very difficult. You can try it yourself.. Put your tongue in contact with your upper palate and try to breathe through your mouth, isn't it a little difficult ... When there is an anatomical structure such as a tongue tie that prevents the tongue of babies from being lifted up in the mouth, or when babies have adenoid hypertrophy that makes them completely dependent on mouth breathing, Unfortunately, it can become very difficult for the tongue to perform these tasks.In addition, when breathing with the mouth open for a long time, with chronic pressure on the muscles in the anterior region of the jaw, there should normally be a "U-shaped palate" in the upper palate, while a "V-shaped palate", "Deep and narrow upper jaw" structure", increase in the distance between the upper and lower teeth, irregularity in the teeth, a little bit of the lower jaw problems such as staying in the ride may arise". In patients with speech (articulation) and nutrition problems, tongue tie and adenoid hypertrophy, performing these two simple operations in the shortest time can prevent the negative effects of teeth - jaw - facial bones, which may occur in time and where much larger operations or interventions may be required. . Generally, patients may think of these two simple conditions as "health problems that can improve over time". If the tongue tie restriction indexes are high, if the patients have tongue deformities such as bifurcation, notching, heart shape, prominent tongue edges, short and thick tongue, it is necessary to see a physician as soon as possible and the patient's treatment should be planned. Again, in the endoscopic examination, if there is adenoid tissue covering the choanae in the back of the nasal cavity, the patient should be informed that the large adenoid is a health problem that may negatively affect the development of the face and jaw, just like the tongue tie.

There is a video about normal growth of jaw and facial bones

This video is showing that abnormal growth of jaw and facial bones because of mouth breathing

I want to say thanks to these video supplier of "Myobrace channel".

While adenoid hypertrophy and tongue tie that I shared with you in this article are a simple and treatable health problem; I wanted to emphasize the complications that they may cause in the long term.
