My Pedia Clinic - Tongue Tie

Tongue-tie, commonly known as ankyloglossia, is a congenital oral condition in newborn babies or infants limiting the tongue’s mobility range in the mouth. In this condition, the child has a tongue tethered to the floor of the mouth, leading to speech, breastfeeding, and eating problems. The severity of tongue tie varies among children and is treatable with proper diagnosis and surgery.

At myPediaclinic, we use state-of-the-art medical equipment to neatly sever the tissue causing the tongue tie. Our simple and proven surgical procedure involves the removal of thin tissue binding the tongue to the mouth floor. The procedure is quick and performed using local anesthesia. We ensure to keep the child calm and comfortable throughout the procedure with a pain-free experience.

Our Pediatricians and Pediatric Dentists in Dubai provide personalized care to meet your child’s needs with complete attention and care. myPediaclinic has a child-friendly and fun environment to help your child get the tongue-tie treatment with smiles and laughter all around.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ Front

Commonly known as ankyloglossia, tongue-tie occurs when there are tissue band abnormalities in the child. This oral condition in children causes the bottom of the tongue to connect to the floor of the mouth, restricting normal tongue mobility in the kid’s mouth.

Yes, in most cases, the child with tongue-tie problems is likely to face difficulties with certain sounds. A tongue tie surgery, on the other hand, can prevent a child from having speech difficulties.

Your baby needs to open his/her mouth wide to latch and breastfeed. Tongue-tie limits the child’s ability to open a wide mouth and enjoy normal breastfeeding. Consulting with an expert Pediatrician or Pediatric Dentist is the best decision to avoid tongue-tie and the problems accompanying it.

What a wonderful clinic. Dr. Medhat and his staff are amazing. They helped us with our daughter’s tongue tie. He went out of his way to help us just before the EID break. He is professional and caring.

Jenn McMillion

Dr. Medhat took the time to listen to my concerns and found the lip and tongue tie that had previously been diagnosed as reflux, overactive letdown, colic, and dairy intolerance. The procedure was quick and my son acted as if nothing had happened. The only thing he disliked was the numbing stuff before his stretches. Once we stopped, he was happy to participate in the lip and tongue stretches. I am so happy I didn't give up and found a doctor that would take the time to listen instead of rushing me out to see another patient.
Worth the hour's drive every visit.

Zainab Mahmood

Dr. Medhat is one of the greatest pediatricians I have ever met! He was the only one who discovered that my son had a tongue tie and a lip tie and it was the reason why my son can’t feed properly! He did a simple procedure and released the ties for my son. We are very happy with the result and honored to meet Dr. Medhat and his team! His nurse is the sweetest! And Ms. Yasmine the dietician really helped us with introducing food for my son. I highly recommend my pedia clinic!
