FAQ Frenectomy (Lip & Tongue-Tie Release procedure)

Are you a new mom experiencing pain when nursing? Or your baby has a shallow latch, making clicking sounds when nursing, pops on/off your breast during feeds, or your baby isn't gaining the weight he/she is supposed to be? These are just a few signs your baby may have a tight Lip and/or Tongue-Tie. Dr. Karrie typically recommends moms get help from a IB-CLC (Lactation Consultant) who can offer incredible tips on breast-feeding. However, if the symptoms do not improve, a Pediatric Dentist who is trained in Tethered-Oral-Tissues, can assess further to see if your baby has a physical restriction in the mouth preventing him/her from thriving. If you're in the Aubrey/Prosper Texas area and are needing a consultation, feel free to contact us at 469-277-1787!
