New Innovative Technology to Release Tongue Ties Available in Indian Harbour Beach
Claire Stagg, DDS of Health Connections Dentistry is excited to announce CO2 DEKA dental laser treatments. This innovative technology will benefit patients experiencing sores, mouth ulcers, gum disease, as well as tight lip and tongue ties.
“A common misdiagnosed condition in dentistry is tight lip and tongue ties which can cause poor oral health, speech disorders, discomfort/struggles with breast feeding, sleep disorders, compromised airway, and problems eating and swallowing,” explains Dr. Stagg. “Lip ties develop on patients of all ages and need to be released when they restrict lip and tongue mobility and function especially during nursing, eating, swallowing, speaking, and other functions.” Tongue tie is a common condition that restricts the tongue’s range of motion and ability to move side to side or lift to the roof of the mouth. The CO2 DEKA laser can release these ties in less than 60 seconds so patients can immediately see life-changing results.
Dr. Stagg is collaborating with MyoAir to provide comprehensive care for incorrect oral muscle patterns that may be associated with tongue ties or tight lip. Their comprehensive myofunctional evaluation assesses dysfunction related to sucking, chewing, biting and other non-nutritive habits that can affect children’s development. “Symptoms such as speech problems, anxiety, asthma, ADHD, snoring and sleep apnea can be associated with airway dysfunction,” shares Joanne Amoroso, Oral Myofunctional Therapist. Working together, both Dr. Stagg and Amoroso develop individualized treatment plans to restore proper and healthy oral patterns.
