Adult Tongue-Tie Release: CO2 Laser Frenectomy
Dr. Leonard Kundel, DMD, a general dentist, with guidance from Dr. Michael Geis, DO, an osteopathic doctor, performed a life-changing laser lip- and tongue-tie release (frenectomy). Hillary, the patient, has suffered from chronic neck and upper back tension and pain for over a decade. Watch the laser frenectomy video and hear Hillary’s reaction to how wildly successful and life-changing the procedure proved to be for her (just two weeks after the frenectomy procedure).
Tongue-Tie, also known as Ankyloglossia, happens when the band of skin that attaches to the floor of the mouth is too close to the tip of the tongue. This band of skin sometimes attaches too close to the gums behind the lower front teeth as well. When the frenum attaches too close to the tip of the tongue, the tongue is not able to move as freely.
Lip-Tie is a remnant of the tissue in the mid-line of the upper lip and gum which holds the lip attached to the gum (gingiva) and may interfere with the normal mobility and function of the upper lip.
Dr. Kundel has worked with patients of all ages since 1999, helping with general dentistry and more complex dental and orthodontic issues, like Frenectomy, with holistic solutions. Contact our office today to learn more about how we can help.
