The updated treatment uses laser technology to vaporize the frenum under the tongue. As a result, the tongue and lower lip gain more mobility, which helps resolve difficulties with breastfeeding and speech.

Children’s Choice Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics’ latest procedure is largely painless, though patients can be given anesthetics to further reduce discomfort. During the process, the laser’s heat sterilizes the area and prevents infections.
Frenectomy is prescribed for kids whose frenum is unusually short and thick, which causes the condition called ankyloglossia or tongue-tie. It is estimated that up to 5% of all newborns have this issue.
While the problem can be treated in adulthood, it can cause many difficulties for children, which is why frenectomy is often done at a young age. Children’s Choice Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics has doctors who train up to three years longer than general dentists to better care for juvenile patients.
Laser surgery can also treat lip-tie, a closely associated condition that involves the upper lip. Through this procedure, issues such as speech problems and jaw pain can be prevented.
Prospective clients can book an appointment online. The clinic is open from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM on weekdays and sees patients by appointment on Saturdays.

A satisfied patient shared this review: “We have been going here since my daughter was around two-and-a-half years old and she loves this place. She jumps in the dentist’s chair and is happy to get her teeth cleaned. Words cannot express how much Dr. Anamelechi has changed the dentistry game for children and their families.”
