Hibbert Tongue Tie Clinic Manchester

Feeding problems are the most common difficulty new mothers face. Babies with feeding issues either have trouble latching on or don't swallow enough milk because they can't breathe. Thankfully, there are many treatment options for feeding problems that range from switching to a formula to surgery.

If the baby can't latch on, this may be due to a tongue-tie, where the tissue under the tongue is too short and restricts movement. Tongue-ties happen in about one in every 100 babies and it can be easily treated by an oral surgeon or pediatrician, if identified before six months of age. This is a quick and painless procedure that can lead to improved breastfeeding for mom and baby.

Dr David Hibbert is a specialist who, for many years, has been providing tongue tie surgery for babies suffering from Ankyloglossia (Tongue Tie). His procedure is quick and painless and can lead to a much improved breastfeeding experience for mom and baby.

The surgery is a procedure that is performed in a purpose-built medical centre or in the comfort of your home. We are situated just 10 minutes drive north of Manchester City Centre and are always ready to help.

Tongue Tie & Procedure

Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is a condition in which an unusually short, thick or tight band of tissue (lingual frenulum) tethers the bottom of the tongue's tip to the floor of the mouth. If necessary, tongue-tie can be treated with a surgical cut to release the frenulum (frenotomy). The actual procedure only take a few seconds and most babies are not in any discomfort within a few minutes.

After Care

After the procedure you will feed or nurse your baby. There is sometimes a very small amount of bleeding momentarily. Dr Hibbert will then give you an aftercare talk including an exercise to aid movement of your babies tongue.
