Adult Tongue Tie Clinic Manchester

While tongue-tie is commonly associated with infants, it is important to recognize that it can also affect adults.

Adult tongue-tie can have a significant impact on an individual's quality of life. It occurs when the frenulum, the tissue that connects the underside of the tongue to the floor of the mouth, is too short or tight. This can cause the frenulum to catch the bottom front teeth and can restrict the movement of the tongue, causing difficulty with speech, eating, and even breathing.

Despite its negative impact, adult tongue-tie is often overlooked. However, diagnosis is simple and treatment can be highly effective, typically through a quick and easy procedure called a frenectomy.

Dr David Hibbert is a specialist who, for many years, has been providing tongue tie surgery for adults suffering from Ankyloglossia (Tongue Tie). His procedure is quick and is performed under local anaesthetic. Most adults only have minor discomfort during healing.

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.

Adult Tongue Tie Service

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 adults are not in any discomfort within a few minutes.

After Care

After the procedure, Dr. Hibbert will provide you with aftercare instructions. These will include exercises to improve tongue movement, pain management strategies and how to use antiseptic mouth washes during the healing process.
