What Is a Tongue-Tie and Why Have It Released with a Lightscalpel Laser?
One of the many procedures performed with the LightScalpel CO2 laser is a frenectomy, also commonly referred to as a tongue-tie or lip-tie release. Tongue-ties can negatively affect people of all ages. Once a tongue-tie is properly diagnosed by a trained professional, a LightScalpel frenectomy can be performed. A LightScalpel frenectomy is a quick and gentle and can improve patients’ overall quality of life. A tongue-tie, if left untreated, can lead to difficulty with nursing, breathing, speaking, swallowing, can affect the development of the mouth and face, oral hygiene, and more. An infant LightScalpel laser frenectomy, in most cases, is bloodless and requires no sutures. Compared to other methods, a LightScalpel CO2 laser frenectomy is quick, produces less bleeding, less swelling, less discomfort, reduces the risk of infection, and results in smoother recoveries.
