Making Life Better For Mother And Baby With Tongue Tie Laser Surgery

Dr. Tyson Pickett on Tongue Tie Laser Surgery Read Transcript

Our Keller, TX dentists want the best for everyone in your family, which is why they provide very delicate and highly beneficial tongue tie laser surgery.

Tongue tie is a condition that causes an infant’s tongue to be somewhat anchored to the bottom of the mouth by the flap of tissue under the tongue. This flap, called the frenum, may need to be adjusted to:

  • Allow the baby to better receive the nutritional value from breastfeeding
  • Reduce the stress of both mother and child, as tongue tie makes it difficult for the baby to properly latch onto the mother
  • Eliminate speech difficulties later in life, which tongue tie is known to cause

This condition also affects adults who weren’t diagnosed when they were younger. If you suspect you’re dealing with this issue, we will help you as well.

Call 817-440-3608 with any questions or to make an appointment at our Keller, TX dentist office. All of us at Your All American Smile Center are here to guide you.

We Provide Laser Tongue Tie Treatment For Little Ones

Dr. Hugh Oser on the Tongue Tie Laser Surgery Read Transcript

Keller, TX dentists, Dr. Oser and Dr. Pickett, bot members of The American Dental Association, can easily assess whether your child requires tongue tie treatment by examining his or her tongue. If surgery is necessary, a numbing gel is used so the baby feels no discomfort. In our comfortable yet fully sterilized operating room, it will take only about 10 minutes for our dentists to use a LightScalpel CO2 laser to correct your baby’s tongue. This procedure doesn’t even require general anesthesia, and our laser ensures minimal bleeding, swelling, discomfort, and healing time.

Your All American Smile Center will provide you with all the advice and information you need during the healing process. You can also call us at any time with questions.

Taking Care Of You

This condition, known as “ankyloglossia,” affects adults as well. If you decide to have tongue tie laser surgery, our staff will ensure you are completely comfortable. Though the procedure is very swift and simple, we offer safe sedation options to help you fully relax.
