Plainsboro Dental Services: Comprehensive Lip and Tongue Tie Treatments

Welcome to Plainsboro Dental Services, your reliable partner for comprehensive dental solutions. One of our key specialties is in providing top-notch lip and tongue tie treatments, designed to enhance your oral function and improve your overall health. Under the adept guidance of Dr. Priti Dagli, we promise personalized attention, thorough diagnoses, and effective treatments.

Understanding Lip and Tongue Tie

A lip or tongue tie occurs when the small piece of skin connecting the tongue to the floor of the mouth (lingual frenulum), or the upper lip to the gum (labial frenulum), is shorter, thicker, or tighter than usual. This condition can impede normal tongue and lip mobility, potentially affecting feeding in younger children, speech articulation, and overall oral health.

Signs of Lip and Tongue Tie

Recognizing the signs of a lip and tongue tie is the first step towards seeking an effective treatment. Symptoms may vary, but they often include:

  • Difficulty in latching during feeding
  • Impaired speech
  • Difficulty in lifting the tongue or moving it from side to side
  • Difficulty in sticking out the tongue past the lower front teeth
  • A tongue that appears notched or heart-shaped when stuck out

How We Diagnose Lip and Tongue Tie

At Plainsboro Dental Services, we pride ourselves on our thorough examination procedures. Dr. Dagli’s experience and adeptness in identifying the telltale signs of a lip and tongue tie ensure accurate diagnoses, forming the basis of an effective treatment plan.

Our diagnostic process includes a comprehensive oral examination and a detailed discussion about the patient’s symptoms and history. We strive to ensure a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for all our patients during this process.

Treating Lip and Tongue Tie: The Frenectomy Procedure

A common and effective treatment for lip and tongue ties is a procedure known as a frenectomy. This treatment involves the careful cutting or removal of the frenulum, the small fold of tissue causing the tie. Our practice uses state-of-the-art techniques to ensure the procedure is as comfortable and efficient as possible.

Adult Frenectomy

Not just for children, adult frenectomy is another service that we offer at Plainsboro Dental Services. Adults who have lived with an untreated lip or tongue tie may experience issues with speech, eating, and even intimate activities. It’s never too late to address these problems. A frenectomy can significantly improve an adult’s quality of life by eliminating discomfort and enhancing oral function.
