From suckling struggles for babies to speech difficulties for children, tongue ties cause all kinds of complications. Luckily, fixing a tongue tie is becoming increasingly easy. Alaska Dentistry for Kids, Anchorage’s premier children’s dentist, uses cutting-edge tongue tie laser treatment to remedy this frustrating problem with minimal pain or fuss.
Here is a quick overview of the tongue tie laser procedure:
- Quick & Easy: With tongue tie laser surgery, your child will be in and out of the chair in less time than it takes to listen to their favorite song. Generally taking around two to three minutes to perform, the procedure is quick and almost entirely painless. Performed by the experienced dentists at Alaska Dentistry for Kids, this quick procedure is a trauma-free solution to your child’s tongue tie.
- Smooth Recovery: Tongue tie laser treatment generally has little to no bleeding, extremely minimal risk of infection, and zero sutures. In fact, the healing period can sometimes be as little as two hours. Babies will suckle immediately after the procedure. Children may be disappointed to learn that they’ll be able to go to school the very next day. In most cases, eating will also be normal within a day, though ice cream is still an excellent reward for bravery. Just remember to be sure to brush well afterward!
- Kid-Centric Care: As a dedicated children’s dentist practice, Alaska Dentistry for Kids is devoted to making kids feel safe and comfortable. Their caring, compassionate team knows that going to the dentist can be scary at any age, and the idea of surgery can be even scarier. They’ll go above and beyond to give your child personalized, attentive, and sensitive care, for a supportive and safe experience. Fully equipped to accommodate children with physical and mental disabilities, this compassionate dental practice works hard to make sure every patient feels welcome and entirely comfortable in their office.
