At Hello Dental, we see infants as young as 2 days old to access their oral motor skills including the necessary reflexes & tongue function as both affects feeding which is a vital aspect at this age. Our goal is to optimize development from infancy by accessing their oral myofunction & develop oral motor skills from birth.
We work alongside Lactation Consultant, Speech Therapist & Bodyworkers to address breastfeeding difficulties, speech or feeding issues.
Tongue tie, also known as ankyloglossia, is a condition where the tissue that attaches the tongue to the bottom of the mouth is unusually short or tight. This can restrict the movement of the tongue and cause difficulty with speaking, eating, & breastfeeding.
Not all tongue tie needs to be released. At Hello Dental, we provide laser functional frenectomy when indicated.
We access the tongue function, tone and coordination to ensure release is done functionally (not just a snip but also with exercises) to strengthen tongue tone.
Pacifiers are a common tool used to soothe infants and young children. While they can be helpful in the short term, prolonged pacifier use can lead to dental issues such as malocclusion (misaligned teeth), drooling and problems with speech development.
At Hello Dental, we can help you determine if pacifier use and drooling are impacting your child’s dental health and develop a plan to address any issues that arise.
Thumb sucking is a common habit among infants and young children, and it is a natural way for them to self-soothe and feel comfortable. However, if the habit persists beyond the age of 4 or 5, it can begin to cause problems with the development of the mouth and teeth.
If you are concerned about your child’s thumb sucking habit, there are many way to approach including behavioral therapy and chewing appliance. In Hello Dental, we believe is important to approach the issue with patience and understanding.
