About

Relief for your little one.

Welcome to Texas Tongue-Tie Center.

Located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, the world’s largest medical community that is leading the latest advancements in medicine and life sciences, we are proud to be the first and the only healthcare facility solely dedicated to perfecting the art of laser frenectomy in the state of Texas.

The long-term success of frenectomies often depend on strategic follow-up care. That’s why we have partnerships with several medical professionals and institutions in the region to provide optimal care for children whose oral restrictions we have released. Additionally, in rare cases that need to be performed under general anesthesia due to patient needs or medical conditions, we collaborate with Children’s at Memorial Hermann as well as MH Surgery Center.

If you suspect your child may have tethered oral tissues or oral restrictions, reach out to us to schedule a complimentary consult. It’s an honor to help!

Release mouth restrictions and watch your child thrive.

Here are a few of the things you can count on from our team:

You'll be heard.

When you say something seems wrong, we believe you. We take your concerns seriously and prioritize your comfort in our mother-child centered environment.

Your child will be in good hands.

We have years of experience in children’s dentistry, top-notch training and equipment, and close collaboration with other professionals fully focused on your child’s wellness.

You won't get a surprise bill.

Medical bills tend to slip in “surprises.” Not here. We believe in total transparency in the billing process. In most cases, we can release all restrictions for less than $80/month.
