a healthy place for growing smiles

From Jenkins Dentistry to Tongue Tie Expertise: A Seamless Journey

At Jenkins Dentistry for Kids, our commitment to your child’s oral health is unwavering. We understand that each child’s dental needs are unique, and we pride ourselves on providing specialized care that ensures their smiles are bright and healthy. In our continuous effort to offer comprehensive pediatric dental solutions, we are excited to introduce a specialized focus on a common yet often overlooked condition that affects many children: tongue ties.

Tongue ties, medically known as ankyloglossia, can significantly impact a child’s oral development, feeding, speech, and even breathing. Recognizing the need for expert care in this area, we extend our services beyond general pediatric dentistry to include specialized treatments for tongue ties. These treatments are offered through our dedicated practice, Midwest Tongue Tie Professionals, where our team of experienced professionals is committed to providing your child the highest standard of care.

Understanding Tongue Ties and Oral Myofunctional Therapy

A tongue tie occurs when the strip of skin under a child’s tongue (the lingual frenulum) is shorter than usual, which can restrict tongue movement. This condition can lead to challenges with breastfeeding, speech development, and other oral activities. At Midwest Tongue Tie Professionals, we specialize in diagnosing and treating tongue ties, offering a solution that can alleviate the limitations this condition may impose, providing parents with a sense of relief and hope for their child’s future.

Our approach at Midwest Tongue Tie Professionals is holistic and patient-centered. We employ the latest advancements in frenectomy procedures, where a simple yet precise treatment can release the tongue and allow for a full range of motion. This procedure is complemented by our expertise in Oral Myofunctional Therapy (OMT), a rehabilitative process that strengthens the tongue and oral muscles, enhancing breathing, swallowing, and speech functions. We are dedicated to meeting all of your child’s needs, ensuring their comfort and well-being throughout their treatment journey.
