Laser Frenectomy

Pediatric Dentist in Levittown

Board certified pediatric dentist Dr. Amar Singh, now offers state-of-the-art CO2 laser surgery options for children of all ages with the Lightscalpel. One of the many procedures performed with a LightScalpel CO2 laser is a tongue-tie release, which is quick, gentle and typically requires no sutures (stitches). A tongue-tie can negatively impact a child’s ability to swallow, speak, sleep, a baby’s ability to nurse, and more.

If your baby is having trouble latching, very gassy, gags during feeding, has poor weight gain, reflux, or bites/chews the nipple causing pain or mastitis to mother....these are just a few of the many symptoms that can arise from an undiagnosed lip or tongue tie. Please schedule an appointment with us for a consultation. We will investigate to see if there are any tethered oral tissues restricting your child from feeding properly. The results can be dramatic and life changing from a very simple procedure.

When compared to traditional methods, LightScalpel laser soft-tissue procedures result in little to no bleeding, less swelling, and less discomfort. The American-made LightScalpel CO2 laser is cleared by the FDA for numerous soft tissue surgical procedures including frenectomy (tongue- and lip-tie release), mucocele excision, unerupted tooth exposure, and many more.
