LASER TONGUE TIE
& LIP TIE RELEASE
A tongue tie can make breastfeeding painful or even impossible. We always recommend your first step be to work with a lactation consultant, but always feel free to email or call with questions!
TONGUE TIE RELEASE
Older kids and adults often need a more in-depth release procedure where the focus is on releasing tight fascia. A functional release requires that the patient also be working with a myofunctional therapist and a bodyworker for best results.
If your child, as young as age 3, already has tooth crowding, underbite, overbite, or any jaw growth issues, we can start addressing it now. There is no reason to wait until your child has adult teeth to start correcting malocclusions.
Dr. Tara utilizes ALF treatment with myofunctional therapy for restoring optimal structure and function. This protocol uses our bodies' inherent ability to heal and is a more natural way of getting growth patterns back on track.
Dysfunction of your orofacial muscles (tongue, lips, cheeks) is the most common reason for speech and feeding disorders and crooked and crowded teeth.
Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy treats the root cause for long term stability.
