Yes they can cause issues with a lot of things, speech, eating solids etc and can also cause teeth decay depending on how severe the lip tie is.
of you feel that you MCHN isn’t paying attention or taking you seriously you should listen to your mummy instinct, then you should go to your GP and push to get a referral to a speech pathologist or see a Lactation Consultant if you are still breastfeeding. Either of these will be able to tell.
I had to fight to get my little boy referred onto a Speech Pathologist from my GP and it turns out he has a category 3 lip tie and an anterior tongue tie which often go together.
If you had any issues breastfeeding, this could be the cause.
