Texas Tongue-Tie Center | Houston, TX

Say goodbye to your child’s tongue-tie.

Texas’ only practice solely devoted to oral frenectomies.

SAFE

With professional expertise and an extremely precise laser, this procedure is very low-risk.

QUICK

The release is fast, efficient, and can often be performed on the same day as the initial consultation.

PAINLESS

Most cases don’t require sedation, so babies can nurse directly following the release, and children can play.

Seeing your child struggle is agonizing.

Whether you have a newborn unable to eat until satisfied or a toddler having a hard time talking, watching a little one struggle and not knowing how to fix it is terrible.

Oral restrictions can be the culprit of many problems relating to breastfeeding, eating, speaking, sleeping, and even abnormal facial growth. But, there’s good news! Through a simple but highly precise procedure called laser frenectomy, we can release tongue-, lip-, and buccal-ties.

With the restriction out of the way, children often nurse, talk, and chew with greater ease, moms are more likely to breastfeed comfortably, and everyone has a better chance of enjoying the precious days of childhood!

Get rid of that pesky string for good.

We look forward to meeting you!

The quick, painless procedure can usually be completed at the same time as the initial consultation, if desired.

Continued follow-up care by other medical professionals can be key to the overall success of our procedure. We’ll make recommendations for the proper specialists, often including lactation consultants, speech therapists, myofunctional therapists, or chiropractors.

A lifetime of relief is possible.

The benefits of easier eating, talking, or sleeping can be tremendous for your child — and for you.
