If your child has exhibited signs of nursing difficulty, it could be that those symptoms are related to a lip or tongue tie. Does your child currently suffer from a lisp or speech impediment or have a large gap between their front teeth? In cases like these, there is the possibility that the restricted movement of your child's lip or tongue could be responsible.
Tongue and Lip Revision Possibilities
At The Dentists in Lawrence, we offer laser frenectomy treatments for patients of all ages, including infants and elderly patients, to help you regain the proper use and control of the lip and tongue.
We use state-of-the-art laser technology and the procedures are completely safe, quick and painless and can be done right here in our office. By using the laser we can be very precise, have minimal bleeding and post-op complications, and usually can be performed with topical numbing gel.
As a child's permanent molars begin to develop, our team recommends positioning dental sealants as early as possible. By doing so, crevasses and grooves on the chewing surfaces of the child's teeth are less likely to collect bacteria be at risk of tooth decay.
The application of dental sealants is fast and comfortable, and can effectively protect teeth for many years.
