Is your child “tongue-tied”?

Tongue tied, also known as “ankyloglossia” is a condition that affects how the tongue is attached to the floor of the mouth. Depending on where the tongue is attached, problems can arise such receding gums or even more severe issues such as speech deficits. Does your child have any speech issues related to them being tongue tied? If so, talk to your dentist about treatment as we perform a quick, relatively painless procedure called a “frenulectomy” that can eliminate this condition! Using a low powered laser, we can nonsurgically modify the attachment of the tongue. Quick, immediate results with little to no postop discomfort. Talk to Dr.Glasmeier about tongue-tied!
