"We just wanted to give you an update on how our daughter is doing. It is almost four weeks since her tongue tie procedure. Once the soreness subsided she was in great form and really content. She does not mind us massaging the wound and seems to see the other exercises as a fun game. Her tongue is visibly more flexible now. Her feeding has improved. She was having short feeds every one​ to two hours. Now she is having feeds every two to three hours and usually has a gap of five hours between feeds at one point during the night. Her latch is deeper and she feeds for longer now. We would like to thank you all for your professional and friendly service, including follow up after the procedure. A child requiring any kind of surgery is upsetting for a parent. But your welcoming clinic, friendly and professional team and general positivity made it easier than we thought possible. I would have no hesitation in recommending your service to a family member or friend."

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.
