"We would just like to say a very big thank for your help, expertise and advise. We saw you in July and again on Sept 2nd with our son Eóin. Since you revised the tongue tie a second time he has come on in leaps and bounds. He is much happier and more settled in himself. We've left behind the worry and frustration caused by his total refusal to eat, and are now really enjoying watching his growing enjoyment of food!

Before the revision he drank hardly anything from a cup or a bottle and refused to eat anything at all. He now drinks about a 400ml from a zippy cup while I'm at work. He's eating three small meals a day and is enjoying his finger food. He just started to eat slightly lumpy food without gagging. It took about two weeks for the improvement to come and he has a bit to go before he is eating enough but we are over the moon with the progress he has made. It's a pleasure to watch him eat now."

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.
