Tongue ties can continue to affect adults in the future if the condition is not diagnosed and taken care of at an early age. If you realize this might be an issue for you, we will check to see if this an issue, and if necessary remove the tongue tie as well.

Dr. Pickett is a well-educated and expert trained dentist who maintain current membership with The American Dental Association, and can quickly determine whether your child is encumbered by a tongue tie as well as whether or not treatment will solve the tongue tie.
If a tongue tie treatment is necessary, then we will apply a numbing gel so that the baby feels no pain or discomfort. We also know how important it is that your child remain safe from infection, so we maintain extreme cleanliness throughout our entire office.
The entire procedure lasts only about 10 minutes using our LightScalpel CO2 laser designed specifically for soft tissue surgery to remove your baby’s tongue tie. This procedure is completely safe and doesn’t require general anesthesia. You can feel comforted that our LightScalpel CO2 laser minimizes bleeding, swelling, pain, and reduces the healing time dramatically.
Dr. Pickett will happily provide you any other information and counsel on whether your child needs tongue tie laser surgery.
