What Is Tongue Tie Treatment?
Tongue tie treatment, which is medically known as a frenectomy, is a procedure that involves cutting the connective tissue either underneath the tongue or in the center of the upper or lower lip.
There are several frenulums in the mouth and when these connective tissues are too large or too short, they can prevent proper mobility of the lips and tongue. We can perform a frenectomy using revolutionary dental lasers for precision care and treatment.
Benefits of the laser frenectomy in infants and children:
1. Improved breastfeeding: A tight frenum can cause difficulty with breastfeeding, as the infant may have difficulty latching onto the breast and sucking effectively. A laser frenectomy can help to loosen the frenum and improve the child’s ability to breastfeed, which can have a positive impact on their overall nutrition and growth.
2. Enhanced speech development: A tight frenum can also interfere with the infant’s ability to move their tongue freely, which can affect their speech development. By loosening the frenum, a laser frenectomy can help to improve the infant’s tongue movement and facilitate the development of clear speech patterns.
3. Improved oral hygiene: A tight frenum can make it difficult for the infant to brush their teeth effectively, which can lead to an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. A laser frenectomy can help to improve the infant’s ability to brush their teeth and maintain good oral hygiene.
4. Reduced discomfort: Laser frenectomies are typically performed using a laser, which is a precise and minimally invasive tool. As a result, the procedure is generally less painful and has a shorter recovery time compared to traditional surgical methods.
5. Improved appearance: In some cases, a tight frenum can cause a noticeable gap between the upper front teeth, which can affect the infant’s appearance. A laser frenectomy can help to close this gap and improve the infant’s appearance.
6. Overall, a laser frenectomy can provide a number of benefits for infants with a tight frenum. If you have concerns about your infant’s frenum and its potential impact on breastfeeding, speech development, or oral hygiene, it may be worth speaking with a healthcare professional to determine if a laser frenectomy is an appropriate treatment option.
Benefits of the treatment with laser as opposed to traditional methods
No Sutures Required: Unlike traditional frenectomy procedures that require sutures, laser frenectomy does not require any stitching. This means that there is no need for follow-up visits to remove sutures or worry about scarring.
Reduced Risk of Infection: Laser frenectomy reduces the risk of infection because the laser seals off blood vessels as it cuts, which minimizes bleeding and the potential for bacteria to enter the wound.
Faster Healing: Laser frenectomy typically results in faster healing times because the laser seals off the tissue, which helps to prevent infection and reduce inflammation. This means that patients can get back to their normal activities much quicker compared to traditional frenectomy procedures.
Improved Orthodontic Results: Laser frenectomy can improve the results of orthodontic treatment by removing excess tissue that may be obstructing the alignment of the teeth and jaw. This can help to speed up treatment times and achieve better results. In conclusion, laser frenectomy is a quick and effective way to remove excess tissue in the mouth during orthodontic treatment. It is a painless procedure with minimal risks of infection and faster healing times compared to traditional frenectomy methods. Laser frenectomy can also improve the results of orthodontic treatment by removing any obstructions that may be hindering the alignment of the teeth and jaw.
