Management of frenal ties using LASERS
Prof Dr M S Saravanakumar is the first person in India to have started tongue tie release practice for new borns using LASERS. His vision and mission for tongue tie started during his post graduation (2004). He has completed standard proficiency and advanced proficiency in LASERS. He is also the first person to initiate LASER Assisted Pediatric Dentistry (LAP-D) He has mentored various practitioners across the world, in countries like Nepal, Srilanka, Dubai and Myanmar.
The establishment and co-ordination of various orofacial functions should occur early in life. Frenal ties may be a hinderance for normal development of the craniofacial functions. Release of TOTS is therefore essential to achieve the above. Surgical release was the standard of care for many decades. However, the advent of LASERS has made it easier for the operator as well as the infant.
