Our skilled pediatric dentists and dedicated team offers laser treatment for tongue-ties or lip-ties in Commerce City, Colorado. Using cutting-edge laser technology, we can provide a precise and minimally invasive procedure to help address these conditions in infants and children.
Tongue-tie or lip-ties occur when the thin bands of tissue connecting the lips or tongue to the gums are overly tight, restricting movement and potentially causing issues with feeding, speech and oral development. Recognizing the signs is crucial for early intervention. These include:
- Difficulty latching during breastfeeding
- Limited tongue movement
- Speech delays
- Dental problems
- Challenges with eating solid foods
With our laser treatment, we can gently release the tight tissue, improving function and allowing for proper oral development. The laser technique offers numerous benefits, including minimal discomfort, faster healing, reduced risk of complications and improved precision.
Our compassionate team here at Bright Star Kids Dentistry is experienced in working with young patients, ensuring their comfort and well-being throughout the procedure. We prioritize communication with parents, addressing any concerns and providing thorough aftercare instructions.
If you think that your child may have a lip-tie or tongue-tie, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lawrence Musanje or Dr. Artesha Porter by calling 303-286-2679. Our experienced pediatric dentists and team are here to evaluate your child’s condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment, utilizing the precision and efficiency of laser technology to help your child thrive.
