Tongue Tie Sunshine Coast    5447 7669

Infant:  Tongue tie in babies can affect breastfeeding. We work with lactation consultants and bodyworkers in Noosa, Sunshine coast area to ensure bubs are getting the best chance to breastfeed. 

Breastfeeding is not only important for nutritional value and to help babies developing a healthy microbiome. It is also important for jaw development and developing the correct breathing and muscle functions. 

Children: Tongue tie can affect jaw development, swallowing and speech. 

Adult:  Content coming soon.

The laser we use is Waterlase, which is one of the safest lasers in the world. It works with water and air and seals the nerves as it goes and causing minimal thermal damage, trauma, and bleeding.
