In my search regarding my son's cavities I came across a thread in this community regarding lip tie and the above issues and a peak inside his mouth revealed not only a lip tie, but one that goes between his two front teeth and under his gums. We have a tentative appointment with a holistic dentist in a week regarding the frenum. We want to treat cavities with xylitol and MI paste, if possible.
So, any other moms who had kids with a lip tie that dealt with early cavities, reflux, colic, poor digestion, picky eater, slow eight gain,or even frequent illnesses because of infection related to gut imbalance? Did you get it snipped and did you see improvements?
Our son is 20 months old, breastfed, has at least 4 cavities on his front teeth, had reflux as a baby, colicky, is small for his age (23.5 pounds for the last 3 months ), poor digestions and battled with chronic infections until we introduced raw kefir. He was also born via c-section, so a double whammy for gut health.
I'm wondering if the lip tie thing is that THING I've been looking for. I've spent countless hours online and talking to people trying to figure out what's wrong and am hopeful this is it.
