Tongue tie Frenectomy for 4 year old without general anesthesia?
Hi my 4 year old son who has a tongue tie since born but never had any issues with breastfeeding, so his pediatrician told us that we didn’t need to do anything with it. A few days ago, his new dentist told us that he has a severe tongue tie that will likely impede his jaw development. He already has a cross bite and his dad also has a cross bite. Coincidentally his preschool teacher told us a couple of weeks ago that she is concerned with his annunciations and suggested us to take him to see a speech therapist. Combined the two feedbacks, now I am seriously looking for a Dr. to get him evaluated. It turns out it’s very difficult to find a dr. that can perform this procedure in the office once they are over 1 year old. They all require general anesthesia.
Any recommendations for a doctor that can perform a frenectomy without general anesthesia? Much appreciated!
