Tongue & Lip-Tie Laser Surgery

A Slight Adjustment

We all have frenum, a fixed piece of tissue attached to moving soft tongue or lip tissue. Some people are born with frenum that are too tight or too low. In babies, a tongue-tie or lip-tie can prevent successful breastfeeding. In older children, this frenum anomaly may lead to jaw pain or clicking, tooth decay, inflamed gums, and difficulty eating or speaking.

  • Frenectomy is a laser procedure to remove or reshape the frenum.
  • Frenectomy is fast, noninvasive, and can be performed in-office by Dr. Dawoud.
  • Laser frenectomy vaporizes affected tissue and eliminates the need for cutting.


Pulling Teeth Isn’t So Bad

Harp Pediatric Dentistry takes every measure to repair and recover optimal function to your child’s natural teeth, but sometimes extraction cannot be avoided. If a tooth is too decayed to respond to pulp therapy, is fractured beyond repair, or is crowding other teeth, extraction may be the best solution.

  • Children should only eat soft food and avoid drinking with straws for at least 24 hours after extraction and avoid touching the extraction area.
  • For the first week following extraction, incorporate a salt water rinse and use kid-sized ice packs.
  • Encourage kids to brush as often as they usually would, but very gently.
