What is Tongue Tie?
Tongue tie is the common name for the condition ankyloglossia. The skin that connects the tongue to the mouth is called the frenulum. When the frenulum is too big or too small, the condition is called tongue tie, a condition that lowers the tongue’s range of motion.
Tongue tie is not a disease, but could cause your infant to have trouble feeding. Tongue Tie can impede your infant’s ability to:
- Latch onto Mother
- Suck out Milk
- Swallow Milk
Symptoms of tongue tie:
- Inability to fully extend his tongue
- Frequent fussiness
- Weight gain

How Do You Correct Tongue Tie?
Our Delray Beach tongue tie correction is quick and virtually pain-free. Dr. Saadia uses the laser tongue tie release procedure. The heat from a laser will dissolve the extra tissue, allowing your infant’s tongue to have a full range of motion. Your baby will not need any anesthesia or pain killers. The laser quickly and smoothly makes an incision.
We use laser dentistry because your infant’s comfort is important to us. Cutting the tissue with a sterile scissor can cause pain and bleeding. On the contrary, the laser causes no pain during the procedure. After the procedure, 0your little one may experience mild discomfort.
