Yesterday I decided to check in my 14 year old's mouth again to see if any changes had come from his frenotomy back in September. His teeth don't look that different, but in person, I can tell there was a larger space at the gumline than there is now. The tongue extension right after the procedure speaks volumes, though. This was a child who breastfed easily until he was 4 years old, but I believe he had a host of other issues, including delayed ability to eat solids, extreme pickiness that still affects him today (it makes sense to me that he ate what his mouth could handle, so certain textures and foods were avoided), and caps on many teeth at 18 months of age, and of course the eventual pulling of his teeth in.
