Pediatric Tongue- and Lip-Ties: Diagnosis and Treatment with Soft-Tissue Lasers

2 Day Hands-on Course – 14 CE credits

As many as 5% of all babies born in the United States have tongue-ties significant enough to cause breastfeeding difficulties. This condition can cause a plethora of problems for both babies (difficulty transferring milk, lack of growth) and their mothers (sore or cracked nipples, mastitis and low milk supply). They may also be erroneously diagnosed with GI problems, when all that is needed is a simple 30-second frenectomy to release the tongue-tie, the result of which is to restore the baby’s ability to efficiently feed.

Instructors: Robert A. Convissar, DMD, FAGD; Martin Kaplan, DMD, DABLS; and Joy P. Funston, RN, IBCLC, RLC.
