Frenectomy Procedure In Carver Langston, D.C Resolves Breastfeeding Issues

If your child is having difficulties swallowing or breastfeeding, they may have a problem with their frenum, which is the piece of soft tissue that runs in a thin line between the lip and the gums. If left untreated, it could eventually develop into speech problems and even digestive issues.

You need to visit a pediatric dentist - and one that has gained a reputation for its energy-filled team that loves what they do.

That’s where we come in. Hi, we’re Children’s Choice near Carver Langston, Washington, D.C and we are known for our frenectomy treatment. Now, your child with lip tie or tongue tie can have their condition resolved easily in our kid-friendly dental practice.

The updated treatment involves the use of a laser light that dissolves the frenum under the tongue or lower lip to allow a better range of motion. Completely painless, the procedure is safe for children and even babies.

The announcement is in line with our mission to offer specialized pediatric dental services in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Training for at least three years longer than general dentists, our team understands how to work with children, alleviate dental anxiety, and speak with you calmly and simply. This allows both you and your children to feel at ease in our clinic!

This is particularly important for more complex procedures such as frenectomy. The procedure is used to treat a combination of conditions called tongue tie (ankyloglossia) and/or lip tie. Both conditions can cause speech problems, digestive issues (due to difficulty in breastfeeding), and even dental decay. Experts recommend that you visit a pediatric dentist the moment you notice challenges in breathing or sucking.

During the first visit, you will be asked a few questions to assess your child’s dental history.

And don’t worry! Our clinic is our completely judgment-free zone! We partner with you to encourage and inspire you to speak with us more openly. Nothing is too scary or too sensitive for us to hear. We need to know everything so that we can craft the best possible treatment for your child.

This includes advanced laser techniques that make the frenectomy treatment fast and painless. Typically, the procedure takes 30 minutes or less.

We also offer other pediatric orthodontic services. We consider it a privilege to work with children and help them learn helpful oral healthcare habits.

Those with questions or concerns can contact our clinic at 202-410-0088 or through the indicated form on our website.
