Frenectomy: Before & After Images { AKA Lip & Tongue Tie Revisions } Part 2

{ WARNING: Graphic Images }

 

I have been documenting our journey of navigating the muddy waters of Tongue & Lip Ties and wanted to show those interested the before and after shots from our daughters’ laser revisions on October 21.

Below are photos of my 1-year-old followed by my 2-year-old. Images are prior to, directly following the procedure, and one week post-revision.

I’m very happy with the results thus far. I have noticed both girls’ top teeth drifting back together. My eldest has improved speech, and – the CRAZIEST part of it all – my 2-year-old asked to nurse and was able to latch on and breastfeed without any issues! She has not been at the breast or even been REMOTELY interested in breastfeeding since she was 6 months old! This was an added bonus I was not expecting whatsoever.

I have to stress the importance of seeing a preferred provider from this list (click HERE to view list). This procedure is much like any surgery. Yes, many ENTs and dentists CAN perform the revision, but that does not mean they SHOULD. Much experience is key to successful revisions, including proper aftercare to ensure the frenulum doesn’t reattach. I had my daughter’s upper lip tie clipped at 4 months old and experienced a NIGHT and DAY difference. We went from having constant thrush, mastitis, reflux and colic since birth to never having any of those symptoms again! Unfortunately, I wasn’t given much advice for proper aftercare (bodywork and stretching). Within a year, it had re-attached and was much thicker than before.

 

***We  interviewed the dentist who performed the frenectomies, Dr. Gary Myers of Myers Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics & videoed the whole procedure (which will be up on the site ASAP) ****

Email Dr. Kotlow a picture for a free lip/tongue tie assessment!
