"Just wanted to drop you all an email to say thank you so much for seeing us at short notice. You saved me from a nervous breakdown! Two days after the procedure in the clinic everything was normal! And the cuts were healed with that prescription cream in no time. I couldn't believe how quickly things changed and breastfeeding is now going well at last! You have a wonderful set up there, you may be far from Kerry but I'd travel anytime for that level of care we received from the minute we met the receptionist we felt at ease there."

National Tongue Tie Centre

A world class facility situated in beautiful countryside just 10 minutes from the M8.

Why do I use a laser for division?

All divisions at the National Tongue Tie Centre are completed using a CO2 laser. My personal preference is to use a CO2 laser for division of both tongue and lip ties. Having performed tongue tie divisions with scissors for 9 years before switching to diode laser and then CO2 laser, the advantages that I have seen are greater precision of division as it is possible to visualise and divide the tie to the appropriate fascial layer. There is little to no bleeding and research shows less inflammation following the procedure.

For all older children, and infants who have had reattachment(s), we can suture the diamond shaped wound together thus removing the need for active wound care in the first week.
