The impact of Tongue-tie on Sleep Disordered Breathing in Kids

On May 18th 2018, the Australian Society for Tongue and Lip Ties (ASTLiT) invited Dr. Soroush Zaghi, a highly specialized otolaryngologist and sleep surgeon, to give a lecture on pediatric sleep disordered breathing and maxillofacial development, while paying special attention to tongue-tie.

Dr. Zaghi began the lecture by briefly explaining that snoring is not a normal behavior.

Specifically, he emphasized that healthy nighttime sleep breathing consists of quiet nasal breathing, in contrast to mouth breathing, with the lips closed and the tongue suctioned to the hard palate (a horizontal plate located in the roof of the mouth).
