We hope you enjoy looking at all the information that we have available and feel free to download the information leaflets/booklets. We offer a cutting edge, world class service in a friendly and rural setting. We have created a family-centred space which is the culmination over a decade of experience treating tongue tie and we have a calm, relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. We welcome both breastfed and bottle fed babies as both can experience symptoms of tongue tie.

If you would like to book in, you can do so here or get in touch via our contact page.

National Tongue Tie Centre

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.
