Oral Restriction:
Tongue Tie/Lip Tie

A tongue tie, or ankyloglossia, is a congenital condition in which the strip of tissue (frenulum) beneath the tongue is shorter or tighter than usual. This restricts the tongue’s full range of motion, potentially impacting various functions. In infants, it can lead to breastfeeding difficulties, causing pain for the nursing parent and hampering the baby’s ability to latch properly. As children grow, untreated tongue ties may result in speech difficulties, oral hygiene challenges, and difficulties with solid foods. For some, it may cause discomfort or limitations in tongue movement.

What to do if you suspect a
tongue/lip tie?

At Hello Dental, we exclusively utilize laser technology for tongue or lip tie releases.

  1. Precision: Laser procedures are highly precise and can target specific tissues with minimal damage to surrounding areas.
  2. Less Bleeding: Laser treatment typically causes less bleeding compared to traditional scalpel
    techniques because the laser clots blood vessels as it cuts.
  3. Reduced Infection Risk: The heat from the laser
    also reduces the risk of infection.
  4. Faster Healing: Many patients experience faster healing with laser treatment, as it promotes tissue regeneration and minimizes scarring.
  5. Less Discomfort: Laser procedures are often associated with less postoperative pain and discomfort

Not all tongue
tie needs to
be released!

Every individual’s condition varies It’s important to seek a thorough assessment from a qualified healthcare provider
