Laser Frenectomy for Tongue Tied Babies

The Laser Center for Pediatric Frenectomies, LLC works with parents, physicians, and lactation consultants to correct problems of tongue and lip ties in infants and toddlers.

Ankyloglossia, a congenital oral condition also known as “tongue tie” can limit tongue and lip movement, having a significant impact on:

  • Breastfeeding – The infant can often not get enough milk, causing failure to thrive issues. They may have trouble latching and can also choke and gag. Mom also suffers when this happen with sore nipples and other breast issues.
  • Speech Development – By the age of 3, many children with Ankyloglossia develop significant speech problems. If over half of your three year-old’s speech cannot be understood, they may have a tongue or lip tie.
  • Orofacial Growth – Children with tongue and lip ties can also have persistent dental problems and develop a gap between their front teeth.

It is important to diagnose and correct these anomalies early in life, as they become much harder to address later on. To learn more, visit our Frenectomy Info page or call us at 724-205-9610.
