Scott Siegel MD, DDS interviewed about Infant Tongue- and Lip-Ties

Video of Shari Criso, RN, CNM, IBCLC, interviewing Scott Siegel MD, DDS, FACS, FICS, FAAP, who is a world renowned tongue- and lip-tie expert and LightScalpel CO2 laser owner. They discuss the often misunderstood topic of tongue- and lip-ties, and its impact, not only babies’ ability to breastfeed, but their long-term health as well. During the interview at the 50 minute mark the revision procedure is discussed. Dr. Siegel shares why he chooses to use a CO2 laser, “the most advanced tool,” to perform frenectomy procedures.

Dr. Siegel notes some of the CO2 lasers advantages during the frenectomy procedure:
  • The CO2 laser cauterizes as it cuts, allowing for minimal bleeding, and improved visibility
  • Higher precision; the CO2 laser cuts just the right amount, to get the best result
  • Minimal complications
  • Typically a 30 to 45 second procedure to do a lip- and tongue-tie together
  • In most cases he does not give any shots and uses only a local numbing cream
