If you suspect you or your child could benefit from a tongue tie surgery, please start by scheduling a consultation with us. During your consultation, we will determine if the surgery is necessary.
The surgery itself is a simple procedure. We use a dental laser, the LightScapel C02 soft tissue laser to cut the frenulum free to allow the tongue to move in a free range of motion. Since we use a dental laser, only small amounts of localized anesthesia are necessary to complete the treatment with little discomfort. It also reduces bleeding during the procedure and promotes a faster healing time than traditional methods. Stitches may be required; however, this is based on case needs.
