ABOUT LIP AND TONGUE TIE RELEASE
Children need to be given the best opportunity to grow and develop in optimal health. Sometimes, a child may be born with piece of skin under the upper lip or tongue which is thick and tightly joined to gum, restricting movement. This is known as a lip and tongue tie. Even in the earliest stages of a child’s development, this can make breast feeding difficult as the baby is unable to form a seal on the nipple.
As the child develops, the lip and tongue tie can not only become a cosmetic problem, but can also affect their speech and alignment of their permanent teeth as they come through. In adulthood, this congenital condition can also lead to breathing dysfunctions such as mouth breathing, snoring and sleep apnoea.
To help aid your child’s optimum orofacial development, The Dental Studio Stirling also specialises in lip and tongue tie releases. Also known as frenectomies, this is a simple procedure which uses a soft tissue laser to release the tongue or lip tie in the comfort and convenience of the dentist chair.
The use of light energy as opposed to scissors or scalpels helps to remove the skin, layer by layer in a precise and antibacterial manner, promoting faster and more effective healing. To find out more about tongue and lip tie releases, simply give us a call on 08 9440 4455 or request an appointment with one of our friendly dental professionals today.
