Diagnosis of Tongue-Tie
The diagnosis involves a physical examination of the undersurface of the tongue. Doctors check if the tissue is connected to the floor of the mouth. Physical examination of a breastfeeding mother can also help identify the condition. Often mothers who feed tongue-tied babies have cracked or sore nipples, and experience pain during nursing.
