3 Second Tongue-Tie Release by Richard Baxter, DMD, DABLS

Richard Baxter, DMD, MS, DABLS, 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.
