Build Your Child’s Confidence With a Tongue-Tie Procedure

If your child has excessive bands of tissue that restrict their tongue movement, they have what’s known as a “tongue-tie.” This is a relatively common condition that occurs in between 4 and 11 percent of newborns. However, there’s no need for concern. Your dentist at Hawthorne Smile Spa will be happy to take care of this problem for your child.

We’ll use a special dental laser that’s low-powered and designed specifically for tongue-tie and similar dental procedures. This helps ensure that your child feels no discomfort whatsoever. Laser tongue-tie treatment is quick, and the healing time is minimal.

Some of the best benefits of a tongue-tie procedure (a frenectomy) are:

  • Easier Nursing – It will allow your little one to nurse like normal. Typically, babies with tongue-tie concerns are not able to latch on and nurse as they should. This procedure gets rid of that issue and helps make sure that your child is getting the correct nutrition.
  • Clearer Speech – Tongue-tie concerns can influence the speech of young kids and can also cause humiliation among their peers and playmates.
  • More Confidence – Getting your little one the care they need now can help them prevent unneeded social humiliation that can stick with them for many years.
