Treatment List for Aglossia

The list of treatments mentioned in various sources for Aglossia includes the following list. Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in treatment plans.

  • Treatment is often primarily centered around orthodontics - the absence of the tongue can have a huge implication on the structure of the jaws as there is no tongue to provide pressure against the teeth which normally helps maintain good oral structure and function. Compliance with orthodontic treatment plans is essential to prevent complications such as collapse of the bite, especially if there are missing teeth.

  • Breathing assistance may be needed early in life if airway is compromised due to the absence of the tongue
