Sparkle Dental Tongue-Tie Clinic - a new option in Perth
Sparkle Dental | 15/05/2017
Dr Shereen Lim now offers laser release of tongue-ties and lip-ties.
This procedure is available to help relieve a range of problems in various different age groups.
Which problems can release of tongue-tie or lip-tie’s assist with?
In infants, these tethered oral tissures are a common source of breastfeeding difficulties, and reflux-like symptoms.
When they are untreated at birth, the restriction of normal tongue function can result in problems with chewing, speech and jaw and facial development in children.
Tongue-ties can contribute to lowered tongue posture. They have now been identified as a risk factor for obstructive sleep apnoea. Release may be helpful in some cases to minimise collapsibility of the airway.
There are also a growing number of reports of relief of migraines, chronic headaches and neck tension when these tongue restrictions are released.
