"Karl and myself would like to thank you for all of your help with baby Charlotte on Friday night. Charlotte has been really settled since Friday and seems to be getting the hang of things! Slowly but surely! You, Kate, Claire and the team made us feel very much at ease, which isn't easy with first time parents!! We really appreciate the time that was given to us and the knowledge and experience that you all have. We would not hesitate to recommend your clinic and wish you all the best in the future."

Why do I use a laser for division?

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 laser for division of both tongue and lip ties. Having performed tongue tie divisions with scissors for 9 years before switching to 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 in my experience the babies settle faster following the procedure.

All safety requirements are met through the use of laser safety goggles and a plume extraction system.
