Find Out How Tongue Tie Laser Surgery Can Change Your Child's Life, Anchorage, Alaska

Alaska Dentistry for Kids is a full-service children’s dentistry practice in Anchorage, AK. One of the many specialized dental services they provide to their patients is tongue tie surgery. Tongue tie laser surgery isn’t well understood by many people outside the dental field, but it’s actually a very common and simple procedure that fixes a hugely inconvenient problem. 

Children who are born with a “tongue tie” essentially have an additional piece of skin that attaches their tongue to the bottom of their mouth. The result is a loss of movement and flexibility of the tongue, which can ultimately contribute to nursing problems, speech impediments, and difficulty chewing and eating. tongue tie laser

In extreme cases, untreated tongue ties can eventually affect the structural development of a child’s face and teeth and cause various dental problems. While it’s hard for any parent to face the idea that their child has a condition like a tongue tie, the good news is that it’s extremely common and easy to treat. 

The team at Alaska Dentistry for Kids is fully qualified to perform tongue tie laser surgery, and their use of state-of-the-art techniques and tools makes the process quick and relatively painless. Following a tongue tie procedure, your child may not exhibit an immediate improvement, but according to these children’s dentists, that’s normal. The tongue is a muscle just like any other, and kids who are born with tongue ties have to learn how to strengthen their tongues gradually using simple stretching and exercise techniques. 

If your child was born with a tongue tie and you want to learn more about this simple and transformative procedure, call Alaska Dentistry for Kids at (907) 274-2525 or visit them online today.
