Tooth decay is the most common disease amongst children in the United States. Early dental care is essential in keeping your childs mouth healthy. Our drill free fillings using lasers or air abrasion make it possible for you child to receive a filling with very little discomfort.
Tongue Tied Babies
Dr. Ludlow offers experienced care for babies with tongue ties and lip ties. Using advanced laser dentistry, Dr. Ludlow can treat a tongue or lip ties during a sinlge visit, enabling your child to resume breastfeeding or bottle feeding immediately. This procedure is both quick and relatively painless- there is no need for the use of an anesthetic and your child can enjoy improved natural sucking ability for more effective feeding.
A frenectomy will also allow for normal tooth and speech development as your child grows. If your child has been diagnosed with a tongue or lip tie or has difficulty feeding, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ludlow for a diagnosis and treatment recommendation.
