See if Tongue-Tie Treatment Is
Right for Your Child
If your child has difficulty latching on during nursing, makes clicking sounds while feeding, or has trouble gaining weight, they are showing signs of a tongue-tie. When the band of tissue under their tongue is too tight, it restricts movement, making breastfeeding more difficult. Our simple laser procedure can loosen your child’s tongue-tie in Norfolk, NE and put a stop to these problems. Schedule a free consultation now!
What Is a
A tongue-tie is when the lingual frenulum, the band of tissue under the tongue, is too short and ties the tongue down to the floor of the mouth. Not only can this cause issues with breastfeeding, but it may lead to future oral development problems. Your older child may struggle with making certain letters and vowels, become picky about certain foods, and experience an increased risk of tooth decay or gum disease.
While not everyone needs their tongue-tie released, seeing us for a no-cost consultation will confirm if a laser procedure will benefit your child.
