Laser Dentistry




As members of the Academy of Laser Dentistry, we are pleased to offer Maxillary (lip) and Lingual (tongue) frenectomy procedures to patients of all ages, infants to adolescents, using state-of-art Lightscalpel© CO2 Laser.


The latest research in sleep medicine, oral myofunctional therapy and orthodontic literature is showing that untreated lip and/or tongue ties can be a contributing factor in many health and growth issues ranging from poor feeding at birth, difficulty with and picky eating in young childhood, digestion troubles, poor jaw and facial development, malocclusion, speech issues and the development of mouth-breathing. Tongue-tie, especially, is considered a risk factor for developing Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

As members of the Academy of Laser Dentistry, we are pleased to offer Maxillary (lip) and Lingual (tongue) frenectomy procedures to patients of all ages, infants to adolescents, using state-of-art Lightscalpel© CO2 Laser.

We provide treatment to newborns that, along with their mothers, are struggling to breastfeed due to the presence of either a maxillary lip-tie or lingual tongue-tie, or often both. If possible, we like to work with your lactation consultant after the procedure to help best re-establish proper breastfeeding for you and your baby.

Research has shown that at ANY AGE, a restricted upper lip and/or a “tongue tie” that inhibits the proper resting position of the tongue on the roof of the mouth can lead to many dental and health issues such as restricted mid-face/maxillary growth, a narrow palate, dental malocclusion, sleep-disordered breathing and/or sleep apnea issues, along with nutrition and digestion troubles such as acid reflux and “gas” and speech struggles.

It is important to be aware and become informed about the presence of “lip- and tongue-ties” and the potential of dental and medical concerns that can result from lack of diagnosis or treatment. When indicated, a frenectomy procedure can be a simple, but often overlooked key element to your child’s general health, sleep, growth, and development.
