Does my child really need a frenectomy?
Being told that your infant needs a surgical procedure can sound scary, but frenectomies are simple, safe, and effective with minimal aftercare. Plus, with a conservative approach to pediatric dentistry, your doctor will only recommend frenectomies when they deem them necessary. If you’ve been struggling with breastfeeding or noticing popping or clicking sounds while your child is feeding, it may be time to come in for a frenectomy consultation.
Our gentle, yet effective laser can correct tongue and lip ties with no pain or discomfort and promotes faster healing. In most cases, numbing is not even required, and the entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish.

Sedation Options Available
Did you know that sedation is perfectly safe for children? Sedation can help calm wiggly or anxious patients so they can receive dental treatments that may be hard to sit through normally.
The Benefits of Frenectomies
Experience Better Breastfeeding
Tongue/lip ties can make breastfeeding difficult for both baby and mom. Frenectomies ensure your infant can feed properly and help prevent low weight gain.
Prevent Speech Impediments
Early treatment with a frenectomy helps prevent speech impediments due to restricted tongue movement.
Improve Overall Eating Ability
Releasing restrictive tissues can also help older children enjoy their favorite foods with ease.
