The Benefits of Lip Tie Laser Surgery for Infants, Anchorage, Alaska

An upper lip tie is an unfortunate situation that can cause latching problems for nursing infants. Excess tissue attaches the lips to the mouth, which restricts certain movements of the lips. Alaska Dentistry for Kids wants all children to have the happiest childhood possible, and performs laser lip tie surgery for treating this troublesome condition.

As the leading children’s dentist in Anchorage, AK, Dr. Chris Coplin and his staff are committed to providing the highest quality dental care for infants, children, and patients with special needs. From general dental care to emergency dental care services, their staff will ensure that your child receives prompt and effective treatments for all of their dental needs. When your child arrives at their office for a routine dental exam or an extraction, their caring staff will ensure that he or she feels as relaxed and comfortable as possible during the visit. 

imageAlaska Dentistry for Kids encourages patients with lip tie to have a laser frenectomy during infancy. In this procedure, a hand-held laser is used to remove the connective tissue which attaches the upper lip to the mouth. Unlike steel instruments, lasers produce little to no bleeding during a frenectomy, and using a laser kills bacteria and other harmful microbes in the process. Since the tip of the laser is small, it can be guided as far as necessary to completely eliminate the frenulum restriction. 

Alaska Dentistry for Kids is proud to offer the best dental care services for infants and children. Aside from their lip tie laser correction procedure, they are also highly experienced in performing a laser frenectomy for releasing tongue ties. To schedule an appointment, contact them today at (907) 274-2525, or visit their website to learn more about their dental services.
