WHAT IS it?
TONGUE TIE (also known as ankyloglossia)
Tongue-Tie & Lip-Tie
How it Impacts Breastfeeding
Sometimes tongue-tie may not cause problems. Some cases may require a simple surgical procedure for correction. The dentists at Carlsbad Children’s Dentistry use the most advanced laser technology available.
They use cold cutting lasers that help minimize discomfort and help babies heal faster. Both, the Solea (CO2) laser and the Fotona LightWalker (Er-Yag) lasers are minimally invasive, fast, and precise to provide patient comfort. There is no heat, vibration, or pressure from the laser. It allows for a suture free procedure, resulting in faster healing and reduced pain with soft tissue procedures like a frenectomy.
If you or your child is struggling with Tongue Tie or Lip Tie and you have heard the phrases Frenectomy, Frenotomy, Tongue Tie repair, Tongue Tie surgery, Lip Tie Repair, or Tongue Tie Surgery…just call us to schedule an appointment and we will fully explain everything to you in easy to understand terms, and discuss available treatment options.
