Tongue and Lip-Tie Surgery in Minneapolis MN

Tongue-Tie

Tongue-tie and lip-tie are conditions that can greatly affect a child’s development and daily activities. Tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, occurs when the lingual frenulum, the tissue band under the tongue, is too short or tight, limiting the tongue’s movement. This limitation can lead to breastfeeding difficulties, as the infant may struggle to latch properly, resulting in feeding problems and poor weight gain. Furthermore, as children grow, tongue-tie can hinder speech development, making it challenging to articulate certain sounds. This can lead to delayed language skills and potential social difficulties due to struggles with effective communication.

Lip Tie

Lip-tie is a similar condition where the labial frenulum, the tissue connecting the upper lip to the gum, is too tight. This can also interfere with breastfeeding, as a tight lip-tie can prevent a proper seal around the breast, leading to inefficient feeding and discomfort for both mother and child. Beyond infancy, a lip-tie can cause dental issues such as a gap between the front teeth (diastema) and an increased risk of tooth decay due to challenges in maintaining oral hygiene. Early detection and treatment of tongue-tie and lip-tie are essential to prevent these complications, promoting better feeding, speech development, and overall oral health in children.

Sleep Benefits of Lip-Tie Surgery in Minneapolis

Release and Breathe Dentistry provides specialized care in Minneapolis for both children and adults suffering from sleep conditions, particularly obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and other related disorders. Through our comprehensive airway dentistry approach, we address structural issues in the mouth and throat that can obstruct breathing during sleep. For children, this might involve treatments for conditions like enlarged tonsils or adenoids that can cause airway blockages, leading to restless sleep and behavioral issues during the day. By correcting these problems early, children can achieve better sleep quality, improved concentration, and overall enhanced development.

For adults, Release and Breathe Dentistry offers solutions such as oral appliance therapy, where custom-fitted devices keep the airway open by repositioning the jaw or tongue. Additionally, they may provide surgical interventions like tongue-tie release or other soft tissue adjustments to enhance airway function. These treatments can significantly improve sleep quality, reduce the risk of associated health problems such as hypertension and heart disease, and alleviate daytime fatigue. By addressing the root causes of sleep disturbances, Release and Breathe Dentistry helps both children and adults achieve restorative sleep, leading to improved overall health and well-being.

Dr. Geisler did an incredible job walking us through our tongue and lip tie issue our 7 month old had. Her entire staff was comforting and gentle with my mama heart. I was nervous and they were so understanding and kind. The front desk staff is also amazing. We are switching our entire family over to this dentist because of the experience we had with the procedure.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Life Smiles. My concerns were listened to and I was throughly explain everything! I left feeling more educated. It was reassuring to build a quick rapport and I felt comfortable leaving my 9 day old in the hands of Dr. Geisler and her tech to get his revisions done.
Tana Smith
We’ve used Life Smiles for two frenectomys for both of our children and they do an amazing job. I would recommend them to anyone who would need their services!
Dani Bredeson
Very knowledgeable. Appreciated all of her point of views. Very clearly experienced in what she does. I’ve been doing my research on lip and tongue tie revisions for a while and have seen a few different professionals regarding this and which routes to take! I’ve had multiple calls to multiple places but a few of my very trusted people led me to Dr. Geisler.

Was visiting this clinic location for issues with my seven week old Breastfeeding and her latching. I had received other opinions where they didn’t believe that she had any tongue or lip ties and I did find out that she actually does have a tie in five spots. So very excited that we came to the right place and got a good diagnosis and hoping to get that revised. The doctor and dental assistant Explained everything in detail, took their time helping us understand M gave us a realistic picture of what postop would look like!
