Modulation of tongue, lip and cheek bands – minimally invasive and gentle with the CO2 laser
The procedure with the CO2 laser takes only a few seconds and the benefits of treating oral restrictions will last a lifetime.
Restrictions due to a tongue or lip band that is too short
The tongue band is what attaches the lower part of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. In around 10 per cent of newborns the tongue band in the front and/or rear part of the tongue is fused and too short (frenulum linguae breve/ankyloglossia). The sooner the tied tongue is released, the more favourably the child can develop naturally overall. This is because the tongue’s manoeuvrability is responsible for breastfeeding, the complex swallowing process, breathing freely, the development of speech and sounds and much more besides.
