Dr. Jesse uses a CO2 laser (also called a “cold laser”) to perform tongue and lip tie releases. With this state-of-the-art technology, these procedures can be completed in about 30 seconds. Cold laser technology also results in a much quicker healing process than the traditional use of a scalpel or “hot” laser. In most cases, babies are able to nurse immediately after the procedure, and older children will notice a difference in mobility of their tongue right away.
The comfort of our patients is one of our top priorities, and we believe that a CO2 laser is the best tool to ensure that frenectomies are as successful as possible. Benefits of cold laser technology include:
If your baby suffers from a tongue tie, a 30-second release procedure performed by Dr. Jesse will improve the mobility of their tongue. The mobility created by this treatment will enable your child to lift their tongue to their palate, allowing them to latch and suction while nursing.
In most cases, once the lip and tongue ties are released, your baby is able to feed within minutes of the procedure in our office. We have a tranquil breastfeeding room to use after treatment so the team at Colorado Tongue Tie can monitor your child and the effectiveness of treatment. For older children, this simple procedure will improve eating issues and can also help with speech. Adults will notice decreased neck and back pain and improvements in posture.
If you suspect that you or your child has a lip or tongue tie, call us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jesse. For breastfeeding mothers, this simple, yet life-changing procedure will allow you to connect with your newborn through nursing. Frenectomies can also improve the health and emotional well-being of children, teens, and adults. Call us today at (720) 507-0077 to get started, or visit our office at 4704 Harlan Street, Denver, CO 80212.
