Feed Easier

Babies struggle less with feeding, whether it’s breast or bottle, while older children have an easier time handling solid foods. Mothers experience less pain during nursing sessions.

Sleep Better

Babies, children, and adults can breathe properly through their noses and get a better night’s rest. This better quality of sleep also improves mood and behavior during the daytime.

Speak Clearer

Kids learning their first words can speak more clearly with less difficulty and more comfort. All ages benefit from frenectomies which can help with pronunciation and speech.

Tongue & Lip-Tie Solutions

A.K.A. Frenectomies.

Dr. Chris helps a little patient.

Do you or your child have trouble moving your tongue freely? Are you experiencing difficulty eating and speaking? The problem may be excess connective tissue webbing, which leads to restricted lip and tongue movement.

More commonly known as lip-ties and tongue-ties, the problem affects about 10% of children, but parents and doctors often miss the signs.

In children, a frenum restriction affects feeding patterns and may lead to malnutrition, slow weight gain, and speech impediments in later years. Meanwhile, many adults live their entire lives not knowing why they have trouble eating certain foods or speak with a lisp.

If you suspect you or your child may have a lip or tongue-tie, please schedule a visit to Wisconsin Tongue Tie Institute for a consultation. Fixing the issue takes just a few minutes with our laser treatment, but has the power to change your whole life.

Laser Release Procedure

Find out about the best way to fix a lip or tongue-tie in babies, kids, and adults.

A laser release for tongue, lip, and cheek ties at Wisconsin Tongue Tie Institute is safe and fast. Unlike traditional frenectomies using a scalpel or surgical scissors, our modern frenectomies use a less invasive and more precise method.

The Solea CO2 laser targets the excess tissue, and nothing extra, to safely detach the frenum. While it may take some time for the mouth to “relearn” how to move, the procedure instantly provides relief.

Dr. Chris Peterson is the only dentist in Northeast Wisconsin who uses the Solea laser for frenectomy surgeries. As a parent who knows firsthand about the struggles of a tongue-tie, he’s now on a mission to make your and your child’s feeding journey more successful and enjoyable.

Our team not only helps with this efficient solution, but is also here to support you on your after-care journey. See how it works.
