Pediatric Tongue- and Lip-Ties: Diagnosis and Treatment with Soft-Tissue Lasers
In this combination lecture and hands-on course, attendees will be introduced to the concept of laser frenectomies, an increasingly popular method by which dentists and physicians can treat tongue- and lip-ties in their patients.
As many as 5 percent of all babies born in the US have tongue-ties significant enough to cause breast-feeding difficulties. This condition can cause a plethora of issues for both babies and their mothers. Babies with tongue-ties can be erroneously labeled as “lazy nursers”, “stubborn feeders” or “failure to thrive.”
