Breastfeeding is known to provide several health benefits and is a wonderful way to bond with your infant. Many women and infants experience difficulty while breastfeeding, which may be the result of a lip or tongue-tie. If the lip and tongue tissues reduce the infant’s ability to form a proper latch this can possibly lead to a number of symptoms for both mother and baby. These same concepts can also greatly affect bottle feeding as well. In many cases this problem can be addressed in our dental office using safe laser technology. The procedure is quick and easy and requires no anesthesia or stitches.
If you are concerned that your baby may have a lip or tongue tie that is affecting feeding please call our office for a consultation.
