Struggles with breastfeeding? Speech issues? Dental problems? The solution could be as simple as Tongue Tie or Lip Tie release!

If your baby is having difficulty breastfeeding or your child is displaying speech development delays, abnormal tooth spacing or other oral issues, it may be due to tongue tie (ankyloglossia) or lip tie. These congenital oral restrictions occur when the band of tissue connecting the tongue to the floor of the mouth or the upper lip to the gum ridge is abnormally thick, tight or short.

Tongue ties and lip ties can restrict mobility and range of motion, leading to nursing difficulties, speech impediments, poor oral hygiene, and even dental issues like gaps between the front teeth. Fortunately, there’s a fast and effective solution – CO2 laser frenectomy at the Center for Orofacial Myology.

What is a Laser Frenectomy?
A frenectomy is a procedure that releases the restrictive tongue tie or lip tie by removing the abnormal frenulum tissue. At our office, we use an advanced CO2 laser to perform these releases with unmatched precision and care.

The CO2 laser allows our skilled providers to remove the tethered tissue quickly and with minimal trauma. This laser frenectomy technique provides numerous benefits over traditional surgical methods:

Benefits of Laser Tongue Tie and Lip Tie Release:

  • No general anesthesia or sedation required
  • Little to no bleeding thanks to laser-cauterization
  • Minimal post-operative swelling, discomfort or complications
  • Extremely safe with high success rates
    Sterilizes the area to reduce infection risk
  • Stimulates faster healing through bio-regeneration

For infants, a laser tongue tie or lip tie release can instantly improve breastfeeding abilities and latch. It eliminates restrictions that make nursing painful for mom and unsuccessful for baby. The procedure is so gentle, most infants can attempt breastfeeding again within 30-45 minutes.

For older babies, children and adults, a frenectomy treats issues like speech impediments, inability to stick out the tongue, abnormal tooth spacing/jaw growth and oral-motor development delays.
