What is Tongue Tie?
Tongue tie Adelaide is a condition that is estimated to affect roughly 7 in every 1000 people, and it can impact a person’s life in a number of ways—starting from the early days of breastfeeding. Tongue-tie a condition where your tongue’s mobility is restricted by a short band of tissue (the lingual frenulum) beneath it. In turn, this has an impact on speech, ability to properly chew food, and even breathing. Most people get their tongue-tie treated during infancy with what’s referred to as a Tongue Tie Release or Frenectomy. Evident in the name, it’s a surgical procedure whereby professional dentistry or medical team will release the tether that is restricting mobility. Targeting the problem while children are young will enable them to naturally and normally develop their mouth muscles. Our treatment for tongue-tie Adelaide is highly safe and effective.
How can Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry help you overcome tongue-tie Adelaide?
We do our upmost to make the process of releasing tongue-tie Adelaide as stress-free as possible for our clients. Firstly, we sit down and carry out a detailed assessment to verify whether the frenulum is the cause of the mobility issue. Once this has been confirmed, we give our client a small dose of local anaesthesia to block out any pain associated with the procedure. The dosage will generally be determined by the age of the client, and we might even use happy gas as an alternative for small children. We then carry out the procedure using a Waterlase laser, which will restore the client's full range of motion in 2 to 5 minutes. Waterlase is an innovative and very precise piece of laser technology which ensures a safe, effective and fuss-free procedure. It’s a much less intimidating and alternative to dental tools like scalpels.
