A lip tie, medically known as labial frenulum, results when the thin membrane attaching from the top gum line to the upper lip is tight. Whether it is an infant, child, or adult suffering from this issue, our office provides a solution. Using modern technology, we use an all-tissue laser (ER:YAG) to deliver the highest level of clinical control, and operating efficiency. The lip tie surgery is medically known as a frenectomy or a frenotomy.
If your child is showing signs of a lip tie, contact our Shawnee Dentistry and Braces team for a comprehensive evaluation to see if your child will be a good candidate for laser treatment.
