One of the most distressing things for a new mother is when she has trouble breastfeeding. Although there are many different options available for a new mother to help alleviate her trouble while breastfeeding, there are some instances where a frenectomy may be the answer.
How Does A Frenectomy Help If You Have Trouble Breastfeeding?
One of the reasons your baby may have a problem breastfeeding is because the frenulum (that is, a small fold of tissue) doesn’t allow the baby’s tongue to stretch properly, thus making it difficult for your little one to latch onto your breast and feed properly.
Dr. Saadia at Palm Beach Pediatric Dentistry offers a virtually painless laser procedure that will cure this affliction (sometimes referred to as tongue tie) so that you will no longer have any issues breastfeeding your baby.
A Frenectomy Is A Viable Option If Your Baby Has an Issue Breastfeeding, But Is It Right for You?
If you’re having trouble during breastfeeding, there are a number of reasons why this may be the case, but not every baby who has trouble while breastfeeding requires a frenectomy.
For this reason, we invite you to come in for a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss if a frenectomy will help alleviate your baby’s issues breastfeeding.
