At Upbeat Pediatric Dentistry’s Tongue Tie Institute, we are committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive care to every member of your family, from the tiniest newborns to seasoned adults. One aspect of our practice that fills us with pride is our ability to offer life-changing solutions to common yet often overlooked issues, such as tongue-ties and lip-ties.

Today, we want to share the heartwarming story of the Espanda family, whose journey with us has been nothing short of transformative. Like many parents, the Espandas faced challenges when they discovered that their son was struggling with latching and feeding. Concerned about his weight and well-being, they turned to our clinic for help.

Upon arriving at Upbeat Pediatric Dentistry, the Espandas met with Dr. Vanessa, a skilled and compassionate professional dedicated to improving the lives of her patients. After a thorough consultation, it became clear that their son had a severe tongue-tie that was causing significant difficulties with feeding and overall oral function.

Without hesitation, the Espandas made the decision to proceed with a laser frenectomy procedure, a quick and minimally invasive treatment option offered at our clinic. To their relief, the procedure was completed in less than five minutes, leaving their son calm and relaxed.

In the days following the procedure, the Espandas witnessed remarkable progress in their son’s healing journey. They were amazed to see him retract his tongue fully and stick it out—a simple yet significant milestone that brought tears of joy to their eyes. As they navigated the post-procedure care instructions, they found comfort in knowing that their son was on the path to improved oral function and overall well-being.

While the healing process at home presented its challenges, the Espandas remained steadfast in their commitment to their son’s health and happiness. They embraced the necessary exercises with determination and patience, understanding that each step was crucial to his long-term success.

Today, the Espanda family is filled with gratitude for the transformative impact that Upbeat Pediatric Dentistry has had on their lives. Their son is thriving, eating more comfortably, and experiencing newfound freedom and confidence in his oral function—all thanks to the expertise and care provided by Dr. Vanessa and our dedicated team.

As we reflect on the Espandas’ journey, we are reminded of the profound difference that compassionate and comprehensive dental care can make in the lives of our patients. 

If you or a loved one are experiencing similar challenges with feeding, oral function, or overall oral health, we encourage you to reach out to us. Together, we can embark on a journey towards healing, relief, and brighter smiles for the entire family.
