Orthodontist asks how to use ROM for tongue tie assessment

I’d like to learn a little more about the Range of Motion measures you described in the newsletter. How do you relate MOWS and MOtts to MOmax? Is there a ratio you use to indicate limited opening? How do you instruct the “suction” position to the patient? Is your curved ROM ruler easier or better to use than a straight ruler?

Ankyloglossia 4 year old

I have a 4-year old boy who had a frenectomy last week.
