Transforming Lives: Tongue-Tie Surgery in Minneapolis

At Release and Breathe Dentistry, we specialize in providing comprehensive care for individuals affected by ankyloglossia, commonly known as tongue-tie. Our expert team is dedicated to offering effective tongue-tie surgery in Minneapolis to enhance our patients’ quality of life.

A tongue-tie is a condition where a tight or short band of tissue (lingual frenulum) restricts the tongue’s movement, potentially leading to difficulties with breastfeeding, speech, and oral hygiene. It’s crucial for patients to consider tongue-tie release surgery in Minneapolis to alleviate these challenges and improve overall oral functionality and health. By addressing this condition promptly, we help our patients achieve better speech development, feeding capabilities, and dental care outcomes.

Children’s Tongue-Tie Surgery in Minneapolis

Tongue-tie and lip-tie are conditions that can significantly impact a child’s development and daily functions. Tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, occurs when the lingual frenulum, the band of tissue under the tongue, is too short or tight, restricting the tongue’s mobility. This restriction can lead to difficulties with breastfeeding, as the infant may struggle to latch properly, causing feeding problems and poor weight gain. Additionally, as children grow, a tongue-tie can impede speech development, making it hard for them to articulate certain sounds. This can result in delayed language skills and potential social challenges as they may struggle to communicate effectively with peers.

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 complicate breastfeeding, as a tight lip-tie can prevent a proper seal around the breast, leading to inefficient feeding and discomfort for both the mother and child. Beyond infancy, a lip-tie can contribute to dental issues such as a gap between the front teeth (diastema) and an increased risk of tooth decay due to difficulties in maintaining oral hygiene. Early detection and treatment of tongue-tie and lip-tie are crucial to prevent these complications, supporting better feeding, speech development, and overall oral health in children.

Tongue-Tie Surgery in Minneapolis MN and Beyond: Adult Sleep Dentistry

Release and Breathe Dentistry‘s airway dentistry offers significant benefits for adults suffering from sleep conditions, particularly obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and related disorders. Airway dentistry focuses on identifying and treating structural issues in the mouth and throat that can obstruct breathing during sleep. For adults with OSA, this can mean addressing problems like a restricted airway, enlarged tonsils, or a misaligned jaw. By utilizing advanced diagnostic tools and personalized treatment plans, Release and Breathe Dentistry can help open up the airway, facilitating better airflow and reducing apnea episodes.

Treatment options may include oral appliance therapy, where custom-fitted devices are used to keep the airway open by repositioning the jaw or tongue. Additionally, surgical interventions such as tongue-tie release or other soft tissue modifications can enhance airway function. These treatments not only improve sleep quality but also reduce the risk of associated health issues such as hypertension, heart disease, and daytime fatigue. By addressing the root causes of sleep disturbances, Release and Breathe Dentistry helps patients 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.
Tiana Nelson
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!
