Unleash Your Child’s Potential With Tongue-Tie Therapy

The tongue-tie procedure for children, also called a frenectomy, is a safe and straightforward treatment that can be performed right here in our office. Our skilled and caring dental team understands the unique needs of children and strives to provide a comfortable experience.

During the procedure, one of our dentists will gently release the tight frenulum that restricts tongue movement. This is typically done using a laser or scissor technique. Our team will ensure that your child is relaxed and comfortable throughout the process.

Following the procedure, your child may experience some mild discomfort or swelling. This can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and ice packs. Most children can resume their regular activities within a day or two.
