A tongue or lip tie occurs when the frenum is too short, too thick or attached in the wrong place. It affects an infant’s ability to breastfeed and can cause issues during childhood as the child learns to speak and eat on their own. A tongue or lip tie also can result in problems with their bite. Once diagnosed by a thorough evaluation, a correction can be performed by releasing the tie with a medical-grade laser.
This quick and straightforward process often does not require anaesthetics, medications or sutures. Light energy removes the tissue with no cutting necessary, and there will usually be an immediate difference in your child’s ability to breastfeed.
