Dental technology has come a long way over the last ten to fifteen years. One of these technological advances that have your family’s best interests at heart is the use of laser’s when completing dental surgery for your baby. Dr. Judy Strutz is now providing laser surgery for your child’s frenum or tongue-tie problems. Some dentists and doctors may suggest you wait for this critical surgery, however, with the latest advancements in technology there is no reason to wait and many reasons to proceed early after birth.
Laser frenectomy procedures are a short and easy process that will enable your child to nurse correctly. Once Dr. Judy Strutz is able to meet with you and your baby for a preliminary screening she will be able to better provide you with the information you need to help make the decision whether to move forward or not. While a hundred years ago a midwife with a long nail would cut the extra skin in the mouth. Now a laser has the ability to do the same thing with precision control of the outcome. Using a laser for this procedure allows for minimal pain and a quick recovery. Healing will begin right after the surgery and most children may breastfeed immediately. They will only need a short follow up to make sure everything is progressing as normal.
