Dr. Lucas offers laser frenectomy for infants or children with tongue tie (ankyloglossia) or lip tie. Tongue tie or lip tie is a common developmental condition that can cause difficulty breastfeeding for some infants.
Dr. Lucas has extensive experience in performing the procedure for infants, and now uses laser exclusively. Benefits of laser treatment include less discomfort, no bleeding, and often more complete treatment than the conventional method.
We love to see infants and families in our clinic, and can usually fit patients in right away — we don’t want trouble with breastfeeding to continue.
Give us a call if we can be of help, or you have any questions: 512-900-KIDS. More information for parents on our web site.
