"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."



Why do I use a laser for division?

All Tongue Tie or Lip Tie 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 initially to a diode laser and then on to a 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, no bleeding for nearly all patients and less inflammation and pain following the procedure.
