Treatment of Lip and Tongue Ties

Empowering Your Child's Smile and Well-being

At Lake Geneva Pediatric Dentistry, we provide the diagnosis and treatment of lip and tongue ties. A lip or tongue tie occurs when the band of tissue (frenulum) that attaches the upper lip to the gums or the tongue to the floor of the mouth is too short, tight, or thick, causing restrictions in movement. This can affect a child’s feeding, speech, oral hygiene, and even facial development.

How it Works?

Comprehensive Evaluation: Our team conducts a detailed examination to diagnose lip and tongue ties, considering the impact on feeding, speech, and oral health.

Frenectomy Procedure: We perform a simple, quick, and minimally invasive procedure called a frenectomy to release the tie, using state-of-the-art technology for precision and comfort.

Post-Procedure Care: We provide detailed aftercare instructions and support to ensure a smooth and swift recovery. Collaborative Approach: We work closely with lactation consultants, speech therapists, and other specialists as needed to provide a holistic treatment approach.
