Tongue & Lip Tie Consultation

For All Ages

Does your child have trouble speaking or show signs of heavy mouth breathing? Are they struggling to gain weight or nurse properly? These issues could be caused by a common condition known as tongue tie or lip tie, which restricts the normal movement of your child’s mouth. This condition can create a host of symptoms ranging from poor latching in infants to difficulty speaking, chewing, insufficient jaw growth, impacted sleep, or orofacial dysfunction (like poor nasal breathing) in older children and teens.

Fortunately, tongue or lip tie is simple to treat. Using surgical-grade lasers, which typically eliminate the need for local anesthetic or stitches, we can perform a procedure called a frenectomy to release the frenum, or the tissue that connects your child’s gums and lips. This procedure only takes about 10 minutes but provides lifelong health benefits.

If you notice your child is showing signs of tongue or lip tie, schedule a consultation with our expert team in Fayetteville, AR. We offer evaluations and treatment for children of all ages, ensuring comprehensive care throughout their developmental stages. Call today or book online to get started!

What People Are Saying

We had a great experience at this dental office! The team is very friendly and the office is clean. The hygienist was gentle when cleaning my toddler's teeth and allowed my kid to be involved in the process so as to calm her nerves. The dentist was welcoming and gave me some great info regarding teeth health and development as he did the examination. We were in-and-out of the office quickly. We highly recommend!
