Abstract

Author’s conclusions: a small body of evidence suggests that frenotomy may be associated with mother-reported improvements in breastfeeding, and potentially in nipple pain, but with small, short-term studies with inconsistent methodology, strength of the evidence is low to insufficient.

Reviewers’ commentary: we will evaluate the damage and benefits of the lingual frenectomy in each particular case until we have more evidence.
