Tongue Ties & Frenectomy
Our dentists will examine your teeth and offer you advice on suitable treatments.
Tongue Ties & Frenectomy
Everyone has a thin muscle attachment (frenum) that attaches their upper lip to their gums. When this attachment is longer and sometimes thicker, it can interfere with the teeth causing a gap (diastema) that is not possible to close.
There is also another frenum that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth. When these tissue attachments are tight, they can affect speech and swallowing. QuickLase lasers are some of the most advanced lasers available and are used to painlessly release these frenal attachments with minimal, if any soreness and bleeding afterwards compared to traditional techniques.
The treatment can be performed using topical anaesthetic gel and completed within 30 minutes and costs £595 and lasts the rest of your life if aftercare is maintained.
