Dr. XXXXXXX here
How can I help you?
Im a 26yrs old guy with my tongue tied...I am feeling quite embarrassed because of my speech disorder..so is it curable?
Can you explain what type of difficulty you have.
If there are no much difficulty to speak, then tongue tie can be left alone.
if there are difficulties to speak because of the tie, it can be corrected by surgical means.
Are you following?
yes..I cannot pronounce words properly ex: i pronounce "r" as "l" etc because of tongue tie
Have you confirmed from a doctor that what you have is due to a tongue tie.
If yes, then you can consider visiting an oral surgeon or cosmetic surgeon.
ok..but at the age of 26 ...will the operation be successful??
He/she can perform a simple procedure to release the tie.
and how much will it cost?
approx if not exact
The cost of the procedure varies.
The cost can vary between 10,000 to 30,000 INR.
You can discuss about the cost with a surgeon better.
alright..so sir could you suggest me a good surgeon ?
However at any point of time, I would always suggest you to discuss with a speech therapist about the problem before opting for surgery.
You can learn various means and methods to deal with the problem.
ok Sir..thanks a lot for your precious suggestions
Therefore in simple words, I would recommend you sit and discuss the problem with a speech therapist first.
You can be able to correct the speech problem,
if the problem doesn't resolve, surgery would be the next option.
Have you followed?

Do you have any questions?
