3 Second Tongue-Tie Release by Richard Baxter, DMD, MS
3 Second Tongue-Tie Release by Richard Baxter, DMD, MSRichard Baxter, DMD, MS, used his LightScalpel CO2 laser to perform a posterior tongue-tie release (frenectomy) on a newborn baby. The Laser-ON time was 3 seconds with no bleeding. A tongue-tie release allows newborn babies the ability to latch on and breastfeed when they might not have previously been able to! Dr. Baxter is a board-certified pediatric dentist and the owner of the Alabama Tongue-Tie Center in Pelham, AL. He recently published a new book titled “Tongue-Tied: How a Tiny String Under the Tongue Impacts Nursing, Speech, Feeding, and More” Benefits of using a LightScalpel laser for a frenectomy include less bleeding, no sutures, excellent healing, and minimal post-procedure discomfort.
