Tongue-tie Release – Frenectomy

Visit our new website :

The procedure by which excess tissue under the lips or tongue (tongue-tie) is released or recontoured to provide relaxation of the soft tissues and therefore greater mobility.  This procedure is performed by laser and is simple, quick, and non-invasive.

Babies and infants may benefit from improvement in latching and hence breastfeeding.  Children and adults may benefit from greater range of motion, leading to improved digestion while reducing the risk of developing gum defects, such as recession, or tooth movement and rotation.  Releasing the tongue-tie may also reduce the possibility of developing speech difficulties later in life, or improve an already existing speech problem.
