Being tongue-tied is not just an expression. Tongue-ties and lip-ties are real conditions that can affect how well children can speak and eat. For young babies, it can even interfere with their ability to feed.

To fix this issue, we can perform a frenectomy with our dental laser. This is a pain-free way to loosen tissue so patients can eat, speak, and breathe well. Dr. Tucker discusses this in the video below.
