We offer the LightScalpel special laser treatment…Opens a new window to the official website… (not found at many pediatric offices), which releases the tongue or lip tie so your child can live without unnecessary restrictions. There are no scalpels or stitches involved.
The release procedure is recommended by moms! Parents have reported dramatic improvements when nursing infants and improved eating habits in older children.
We all know how a good night’s sleep can impact your child’s entire day. After this procedure, your little ones will be able to sleep soundly as the tongue returns to its ideal position, and they can enjoy breathing through their nose.
When it comes to speech, there are no guarantees. However, studies have shown positive results after the tongue is released, including improved clarity and less difficulty when children pronounce certain words.
Your child's comfort is a top priority.
