A laser infant frenectomy is the laser ablation of the labial or lingual frenum for infants with a laser. The procedure for infants is the same as it for adults. Infants that have problems nursing may have ankyloglossia (tongue-tie) and be a candidate for a laser frenectomy.
Some reasons for this treatment include baby’s inability to properly latch on to the mother’s breast, failure to thrive (poor weight gain), Improper tongue mobility, colic, reflux, painful nursing, speech development difficulties and more.
Dr Jonelle Anamelechi heads this team and adds that tongue tie “might not end up causing any serious problems for your child. However, there are some cases where tongue tie can cause issues that affect your child’s quality of life. Untreated, it can cause long term oral health issues, speech trouble and make eating some foods difficult”.
Dr Anamelechi is a published author with years of specialized experience and training in laser dentistry for children. She completed the specialized Pediatric Dental Residency Program at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.
A patient recently said on Google “let’s be real— 5 stars is not enough. This is hands down the most therapeutic and child friendly medical facility ever. The entire staff— including the dentist— are incredible … week old son had to get a lip and tongue tie procedure, and there is nowhere else in the world would want him to get it done than here— truly the best and care deeply for patients. The dentist even sang during the procedure and did all she could to help him feel loved and supported. So so thankful for this practice and so lucky it’s right here in dc”
