Laser Technology

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.

Benefits of a CO2 Laser

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:

  • No general anesthetic is required
  • Precision that can't be matched by treatment with scalpels
  • Virtually no bleeding and no stitches required after treatment
  • Minimally invasive and allows for a quick healing period
  • Lower risk of infection during the healing process

The Frenectomy Procedure

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.

Ashley Elizabeth

"Wow! What an amazing place! We drove 2 hours to have our 5 month old daughter’s lip tie released because we heard such great things. It was all true! Dr. Jesse and his staff were extremely professional and beyond helpful. They are clearly experts in ties and made us feel very comfortable, answered all of our questions, and took their time. We came to find out our daughter also had a tongue tie. They also squeezed in our 2.5 year old who didn’t have an appointment because we wondered if she had the same problem, sure enough, she did. The procedure for our infant was quick, and I was able to nurse her right after. We’re going to follow up for our 2.5 year old. After care instructions were very clear, and Dr. Jesse even called that night to check on our baby. We couldn’t be more impressed!"

Brooklyn C.

"Dr. Jesse was nothing short of amazing! He was so kind, gentle and understanding. He answered every question and concern we had very thoroughly with great knowledge about lip and tongue ties. We traveled 4 hours each way to be under his care and it was worth it. Our family highly recommends Dr. Jesse and his very caring staff."

Jamie h.

"I am so happy we followed recommendations and use Dr Jesse and the amazing team. They were amazing using laser technology for my son’s numerous oral tie releases when he was just weeks old. The whole team does such a great job of making my son and our whole family welcome, and calm, and prepared. I wish they could be my dentist as an adult!"

Sarah h.

"Dr. Jesse and the staff are amazing! My sweet 6 week old just had her tongue and lip tie repaired and they were so great! I’m glad I found them on the tongue and liptie support network because they were totally worth the drive!"

Jodie R.

"Brought my 11 week old son in for a tongue and lip tie release we thought had been corrected by an ENT when he was just five days old, turns out it wasn’t! This place is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone. Kind and caring staff. Clean office. Amazing follow up and they were even able to get us in quickly since we are heading to day care in a couple weeks. The doctor even provided his cell phone number in case we need him over the Christmas holiday. Incredible! This place was wonderful!"

Andrew L.

"This place is outstanding for all the important reasons. The entire staff is 100% focused on you during your time in the office. All of them!! I’ve never experience that level of service. They really listen to where you are at, have amazing fancy equipment to check your kid out, and make sure parents and children are comfortable. And most importantly, they do a great job. I was in the room for my sons tongue/lip laser procedure and they were done in 2-3 minutes tops. He recovered without much pain at all and we’ve been sleeping well ever since. Can’t recommend them enough."
