The child has a geographical tongue. When I completed his oral motor examination, the spots look as if he bit his tongue or the spots looks like he burned his tongue. The child has difficulty with tongue elevation and limited lateral movement.

I was recently referred a case where there is an obvious need for a frenectomy, she is 9 and is getting an expander TOMORROW. I need to decide to recommend she get the surgery now and take my chances with the rehab when I basically can't do much more than mobility work while we wait 4-6 months for the expander to be removed, or wait for the frenum surgery after the expander comes off.
