How the Procedure Works


If your child was born with a physical condition where their tongue does not have full mobility, our dentist in Bozeman, MT, will use the precision of laser dentistry to correct the problem during a procedure that often takes less than 5 minutes.

Our Use of Advanced Technology

Developments in dental technology, such as the use of Solea Laser used by our dentist near you, have drastically improved soft-tissue procedures such as tongue and lip ties, making the treatment gentler than ever before.

This procedure is non-invasive, with very little to no discomfort, and includes the benefit of rapid healing time. Babies who undergo the procedure can be returned to their mother’s arms immediately afterward. They can be comforted and begin nursing or bottle-feeding right away. Older children often find immediate comfort from the enjoyment of a toy or other activity.

Our Commitment to Gentle Dentistry

At Bridger Children’s Dentistry, your child’s safety, development, and comfort are our dental team’s priorities. Dr. Aleagha understands how difficult it can be for parents to consider any professional treatment performed on their child, whether they are a newborn, infant, toddler, or older. For that reason, Dr. A and her team are committed to performing gentle dentistry that utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that your child’s dental care is as pain-free as possible.

We know that each child is special, and each parent has unique concerns for their well-being. With that in mind, we are dedicated to working with parents one-on-one to design a treatment plan that takes every concern into consideration and answers every question presented to us.

Also, because every child is unique, we can’t detail your child’s exact procedure without first meeting and examining them.
