Hands down the greatest experience we have ever had in a business. Dr. McLaurin was extremely skilled and professional. My son had a lip tie that seemed like it would never be fixed. We went to other places originally before we found Dr Mclaurin and all I know is I wish we would of went here first. My son had his first surgery on his lip tie at 2 weeks old due to major concerns with feeding and it did not go well. They clipped with scissors and didn’t get the entire lip tie so it grew back rather quickly. I went to multiple places looking for someone to fix it and everywhere I went everyone said the same thing, that they wanted to put my son under for the surgery because it was such a bad lip tie. We didn’t feel comfortable doing that so we kept looking and found this place. Thank the lord we did. She has absolutely no issues fixing it. We were in and out faster than we could of ever imagined. She was HELPFUL and CARED about all of our questions and concerns. We can’t thank her and her amazing staff enough. I would recommend this place for anything you need done without a question.
A frenum is a band of tissue that connects or holds down a part of the body such as the tongue, lip, or cheeks. When a frenum is positioned in such a way as to interfere with the normal alignment of teeth or to constrict the movement of the tongue or lips, it can be excised with a very simple laser surgery called a frenectomy. This is a simple procedure mostly for children and generally takes less than fifteen minutes.
Many parents ask us the recommended age for a Frenectomy. This varies greatly depending on the reasons why the Frenectomy is needed. It is good practice for a child to get a frenectomy only after the permanent canines have come in and after closing the gap between the front two teeth.
