Lip & Tongue-Tie – Woodway, TX  

Improving Oral Function By Removing Restrictions

Lip and tongue-ties are common among infants, which is why Dr. Segall and our team at Hewitt Kids Dental offer frenectomies. By releasing these bands of restricted tissues, babies can easily move their lips and tongues more freely, allowing for easier feedings for mom and baby. With a gentle touch and compassionate approach, we take every precaution to keep your little one safe, comfortable, and at ease throughout the procedure. If you think your baby might have a lip or tongue-tie, call our office to schedule an appointment.

What are Lip-Ties & Tongue-Ties?

Frenulum are bands of muscle and fiber that attach the lips, tongue, and cheeks to the bone and gums. When these bands of tissue are thick or restrictive, they may contribute to difficulties with breast- or bottle-feeding, limited lip mobility for cleaning the teeth, and potential for speech articulation issues.

Lip & Tongue-Tie Treatment

Dr. Segall can meet with you to examine your child and determine if a frenectomy is necessary. A frenectomy is a simple procedure that involves releasing the restricted band of tissue. By creating a greater movement for the lip or tongue, your child may have improved feeding or speech articulation, and improved lip mobility for oral hygiene at home. It is important that we work with your pediatrician, lactation consultant, or other healthcare providers to determine the best treatment for your child
