Laser Frenectomy

A frenectomy is the removal of a frenum, a small fold of tissue that is present in the upper lip or underneath the tongue. When the frenum is too tight, we call it tongue tie or lip tie. Tongue and lip ties can cause issues breastfeeding in babies, encourage decay, and cause facial growth and development and orthodontic problems over time. These ties can also cause speech issues.

The Solea laser has made it possible for Dr. Poplin to quickly, safely, and effectively complete the frenectomy under the tongue or upper lip to allow for better range of motion — for healthier babies and happier parents. Immediately after a frenectomy, an infant is often fully able to latch and feed in the most efficient manner.
