Five star review from Google Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

The Trouble with Lip or Tongue Ties and Newborns
When a newborn has a tongue or lip frenum that is too tight, they may not be able to get a good seal on the mother’s nipple, or a bottle fed nipple. This can result in them swallowing excess air and not enough breast milk. In addition to not receiving enough nutrients, the excess air can cause gas, colic, reflux and spitting up. Using the Solea laser for treatment, you can expect a procedure that is well tolerated by most children. Dr. Knause and team consistently takes every measure to make sure that any discomfort is minimized during the procedure
Solea Laser TreatmentThe Solea laser utilizes sophisticated software which provides the laser the ability to deliver extremely fast and precise cutting that requires minimal or no anesthesia. Solea laser treatment is the optimal option for lip or tongue ties and provides an anxiety free experience for both parent and child.
The length of the procedure is also incredibly time-efficient, lasting just 1 to 2 minutes. Before you know it, your baby will be able to receive the nourishment they need due to gaining a full range of motion around the mouth, tongue and gums.
PreparationHere are some steps you will want to take in preparation for the procedure:
- Bring a blanket to swaddle your baby
- Restrain from breastfeeding before the procedure as you will attempt to feed them right after the procedure to make sure the procedure was successful
