Lip and Tongue Ties

Our experienced pediatric dentists are skilled in assessing and addressing lip and tongue ties in infants. During your child’s dental visit, we will thoroughly examine whether a lip or tongue tie is present and assess its impact on your child’s oral function.

If a lip or tongue tie is identified, rest assured that our compassionate team will provide personalized care and support for you and your child. We offer guidance on treatment options and can perform gentle, in-office procedures to release the ties, if necessary.

FREE Infant Exam:

Establishing Healthy Dental Habits from the Start

We offer a FREE Infant Exam for babies and toddlers under the age of three. During this visit, your child will sit comfortably on your lap, ensuring they feel safe and secure. Our caring team will conduct a brief interview and an examination while your child is close to you, in what we call a “knee-to-knee examination.” We’ll discuss important milestones in your child’s development, proper oral hygiene routines, and address any questions you may have regarding the health of your infant’s dental hygiene.

What Is Infant Dental Care?

Infant dental care begins with establishing a “Dental Home” for your child, where you can receive expert guidance, anticipatory advice, and emergency services related to your child’s oral health. Our pediatric dentists are here to address all your questions and concerns about your baby’s dental development, feeding habits, oral anatomy, and more.

How do lip and tongue ties affect my child?

Lip and tongue ties can cause difficulties with breastfeeding, bottle feeding, and later, with speech development and dental hygiene. They might also contribute to issues like tooth decay and gum problems due to limited oral mobility.
