Laser frenectomy in Bondi Beach – Curing Tongue-Tie

Tongue-tie is a condition that some babies are born with. It restricts the movement of the tongue and prevents it from functioning properly making it difficult for your baby to latch during breastfeeding. Laser frenectomy at Bondi Dental provides a solution and restores the full range of tongue movement and proper functionality.

Frenectomy Procedure at Bondi Dental: Our experienced dentist uses advanced laser dentistry to release the lingual frenulum gently and swiftly. This is the fold of soft (tongue-tie) tissue that is located beneath the centre of the tongue helping to secure it in the mouth. The laser frenectomy procedure is safe and restores the full range of tongue movement.

Benefits of Laser Frenectomy

A frenectomy procedure has many benefits, They include:

  • Better suckling and nutrition for your baby due to an improved latch during nursing
  • The tongue will now be able to rest against the roof of the mouth which is the correct location for optimal dentition
  • With a full range of tongue movement, your child has more opportunity for speech development and articulation
  • Reduced risk of sleep-disordered breathing

If your baby has been diagnosed with tongue-tie we’re happy to offer a frenectomy consultation. Here, we can discuss the frenectomy procedure carried out by our Bondi Beach dentists and answer any questions or concerns you may have about your child’s treatment.
