Laser Tongue Tie Release
A tongue-tie is a condition where lips and tongues are held too tight by the frenum (the ligament that attaches your lips and your tongue to your gum and jaw bone). A tongue-tie can cause gum recession in between the teeth (mainly the front upper and front lower teeth). A tongue-tie can impede speech (especially in children), and sometimes it keeps teeth separated, also common in children.
Many babies and newborns find it difficult to suckle if they have a tied tongue. It's a condition often seen by mothers, midwives. lactaion consultants and doctors.
We are a preferred referral center for tongue-tie release laser surgery. We successfully perform this procedure on babies from 2 days old right through to adults.
The traditional surgery to release frenums is quite traumatic, painful and can take a long time to heal. It involves general anaesthesia and hospital care. Laser surgery at our clinic needs none of that.
The Laser procedure to release frenums:
- Removes the tissue precisely and painlessly, making it more comfortable
- Involves virtually no bleeding afterward
- No sutures
- No General Anaesthesia
- A baby will suckle immediately after the procedure
- Children go to school the next day
- Adults can go back to work the same day
- Eating is normal within a day
"We honestly believe that your services should be recommended in hospitals, and by all lactation consultants for complicated tongue ties."
