What is a tongue tie or lip tie Golden?
When your baby has a lip tie, the piece of tissue (maxillary labial frenulum or lip frenulum) connecting the upper lip to the upper gums prevents the mouth's mobility because it is either too thick, too tight, or both while a tongue-tie is a condition wherein it has an unusually small or tight band of tissue tethers the bottom of tongue's tip to the bottom of the mouth. The excess tissue restricts the movement of the lip or the tongue to several degrees, causing moderate to severe effects.
A severe tongue tie or lip tie can interfere with the baby's breastfeeding and it can also affect the way the child eats, speaks, and swallows. Restrictive Lingual Frenulum can also affect the jaw and dental development, breathing, and digestion. Tongue ties and/or lip ties are often associated with reflux, which can cause significant pain for the infant. When restricted mobility affects bottle-feeding, nursing, or causes discomfort to the mother and the child, a laser frenectomy Golden (removal of frenulum) may be recommended.
What are the Advantages of Laser Frenectomy in Golden?
Minimal pain. Golden Frenectomy laser (Lip or Tongue) treatment eliminates the need for anesthesia. There's also minimal swelling and bleeding. With soft tissue laser treatments, the laser seals the blood vessels, which encourages immediate blood clotting.
No need to stitch. Because of cauterization caused by the heat of laser treatment, stitches may no longer be needed.
Reduces infection. The area that the laser touches is immediately sterilized.
Precision. The pinpoint accuracy of the laser allows limiting the trauma to the treated area. This prevents the surrounding tissue from unintentional damage.
Faster healing. With decreased bleeding, trauma, and risk of infection, the healing and regeneration time is faster compared to traditional treatment.
