Treating Pediatric Tongue and Lip Ties with Lasers: A Hands-On Experience

Course Description
As many as five percent of all babies born in the US have tongue-ties significant enough to cause breastfeeding difficulties. Affected babies often fail to thrive and can be erroneously labeled as “lazy nursers” or “stubborn feeders”. This course will focus on the use of lasers in pediatric dental patients, including treating tongue and lip ties.

This course will review practical aspects of soft tissue laser surgery and the fundamental processes involved in the laser-tissue interaction. Attendees will learn how deep the laser beam cuts and how deep the coagulation and hemostasis extend into the surgical margins. Our hands-on participation lab is designed to train attendees on how to perform laser frenectomies safely and efficiently.
