SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Maribel
"Some babies have difficulties when nursing due to their upper lip or tongue being tied," says Dr. Santos-Cordero. Mothers may also experience pain during breastfeeding. Other signs and symptoms of a tongue tie or lip tie may include:
Children who grow up with an uncorrected restrictive tongue tie or lip tie may develop other health issues like acid reflux, gagging with certain food textures, speech issues, poor oral hygiene, improper bites, dental cavities and become picky eaters.
Dr. Santos-Cordero is not only a trusted pediatric dentist but one trained and skilled in using modern laser dentistry alternatives to ensure each young patient's frenectomy treatment is as compassionate and comfortable as possible. Dr. Santos-Cordero expands, "Not all lip and tongue ties need surgery. The decision is made based on restricted function and symptoms. Traditional surgery uses scissors or a scalpel that can injure and scar the tissue, but at Dentistry for Children and Adolescents we use CO2 laser technology."
Using dental laser technology, she is able to offer Sarasota, FL frenectomy treatment for lip and tongue ties, ulcers, exposure of unerupted teeth and biopsy of oral lesions, among other treatments. Dental laser alternatives, for frenectomies and other soft tissue procedures, offer minimal bleeding, reduced risk of infection, less swelling and discomfort and faster recovery times which are always important for young patients.
Dr. Santos invites parents with children in need of a gentle laser frenectomy in Sarasota, FL to her pediatric dental office, Dentistry for Children & Adolescents.
