Should My Baby Get A Lip Or Tongue Tie?

Improved Feeding

Addressing lip or tongue ties can help your baby latch more easily and feed comfortably, allowing for a more enjoyable experience for both baby and mom.

Better Overall Health

Treating lip or tongue ties early on can prevent potential dental issues, such as tooth decay and misalignment. This ensures your child's oral health is set on the right track from the start.

Virtually Painless Experience

With our LightScalpel laser technology, the treatment process is virtually painless for your baby. It's a gentle and precise approach that requires no numbing, making it easier for your little one to undergo the procedure and recover comfortably.

Here’s How It


Evaluation and Consultation

During the initial visit, Dr. Ullery will carefully examine your baby's lip or tongue tie, discussing any concerns you may have and explaining the treatment process in detail. She’ll ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Laser Treatment

Using our advanced LightScalpel CO2 laser, Dr. Ullery will perform a quick and precise release of the lip or tongue tie. The laser technology minimizes bleeding, reduces the risk of infection, and promotes faster healing.

Post-Treatment Care

Next, we'll provide you with comprehensive instructions on how to care for your baby's lip or tongue after the procedure. This may include gentle stretches or exercises to promote optimal healing and prevent reattachment.

Follow-Up and Support

Our team will schedule a follow-up appointment to assess your baby's progress and provide any necessary support. We're here to address any concerns you may have and ensure a smooth recovery process.
