A tongue tie is a condition where lips and tongues are held too tight by the frenum (the ligament that attaches your lips and your tongue to your gum and jaw bone). Dr. Brett Kingma is specially trained for tongue tie release laser surgery.
The traditional surgery to release frenums can be quite traumatic, painful and could also take a long time to heal. It involves general anesthesia and care at a hospital. With our advanced tongue tie laser surgery, you can avoid the hospital.
Benefits of Laser Tongue Tie Surgery
Many babies and newborns find it difficult to suckle if they have a tied tongue. It’s a condition often seen by mothers, midwives, lactation specialists and doctors.
The Laser Procedure To Release Frenums Involves:
- Removal of the tissue precisely and painlessly, making it more comfortable
- Almost no bleeding afterward
- No stitches
- No GA (General Anesthesia)
- A baby usually will suckle immediately after the procedure
