Laser Tongue and Lip Tie Releases

Laser tongue tie release, or frenectomy, is an advanced and minimally invasive procedure used to address tongue tie in infants and children. Tongue tie occurs when the tissue connecting the tongue to the floor of the mouth is too tight, limiting the tongue’s range of motion. This condition can affect breastfeeding, speech development, and oral health. Laser tongue tie release involves using a specialized laser to precisely and painlessly remove or reshape the restrictive tissue, allowing the tongue to move freely. This procedure offers several benefits, including reduced bleeding, minimal discomfort, and faster healing times compared to traditional methods. Laser tongue tie release is often performed in a dental or pediatric office and can provide immediate relief, improving both the child’s oral function and overall quality of life.
