- You can feed your baby immediately
- Improve your child's speech abilities
- Prevent future problems
If your child is in need of a frenectomy in Hawthorne, you have come to the right place. Traditional tongue-tie removal required a painful procedure to cut the soft tissue in the mouth, but that’s no longer necessary for babies and young children in need of a frenectomy. With the help of laser dentistry, we are able to:
- Safely & comfortably remove extra tissue “tying” your child’s tongue or lip down
- Prevent unnecessary pain during the procedure
- Cause less trauma to your child’s mouth
- Promote quick healing of the area with laser treatment
The idea of removing a tongue-tie or lip-tie can be really terrifying for a parent. The team at Hawthorne Smile Spa is the only one in the area trained to use laser dentistry for a safe, painless procedure. Give us a call at 310-982-4895 to learn how we will treat your child as our own.
Removing A Tongue-Tie or Lip-Tie Is Important for Child Development
Most frenectomies are performed on babies because we often catch the tie when your child is having trouble nursing or bottle-feeding. A baby who cannot wrap their tongue around the feeding source will not gain weight, may be fussy during feedings, may not thrive, or breastfeeding mothers might be told that their baby has a “bad latch”. From a young age, a frenectomy can have a big impact! If any of these things are happening with your baby, give us a call for a consultation!
In addition to improving baby feedings, a frenectomy can:
- Improve speech for some children
- Prevent orthodontic issues later in life
- Improve chewing and swallowing for some children
- Allow for a better fit for dental restorations in adulthood
If you have been told that your child has a tongue-tie or lip-tie, give us a call at 310-982-4895. We would love to take a look and show you how laser dentistry can make your child’s frenectomy much more comfortable.
Know the Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Hawthorne Smile Spa is the only practice in the area that offers laser dentistry treatment. Our Solea laser works on all tissues. We use it when preparing cavities for fillings, treating gum disease, and frenectomies. A laser will ensure that your child’s frenectomy is comfortable, safe, and precise. It is so comfortable, in fact, that your baby will be able to feed before you leave our office!
A laser cauterizes as it removes tissue, which means there is no bleeding, no trauma, and a much faster healing time. For parents who need to have their babies treated for a tongue-tie or lip-tie, there is no better solution than a laser frenectomy.
