"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."

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.
