What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dental is performed with an instrument that generates a very focused and narrow beam of light energy. The goal is to reshape or remove the oral tissue when the laser reacts with oral tissue on contact. Compared to other tools such as drills, focused lasers are amplified by stimulated emissions of radiation. This allows Dr. Suffoletta and his team to treat a variety of oral complications such as hypersensitivity, tooth decay, teeth whitening and gum disease to name a few.
Laser dentistry treatment has been approved by the FDA and has been approved for commercial use since 1989. Laser dental can be used for both soft and hard tissue. Soft tissue such as, gummy smile, crown lengthening, tongue frenulum attachment and removing soft tissue folds. In hard tissue, procedures may include, tooth sensitivity, dental filings and tooth preparation as well as cavity protection. It is also safe for children.
So Many Uses for the Waterlase® iPlus 2.0™
Dr. Suffoletta uses lasers for numerous types of common dental treatments.

Laser Dentist Summerlin
Many infants are born with lip and tongue ties every year, which makes life very difficult for both the infants and their parents, especially breastfeeding mothers. If not treated early, many problems can arise when the affected child reaches his or her adolescence and adulthood. Fortunately, at Functional Aesthetic Dentistry, our qualified laser dentists in Summerlin are skilled at quickly identifying and treating these problems while putting the patient’s comfort first.
A child with lip or tongue tie symptoms can benefit from a pediatric laser tongue tie or lip tie treatment, which is also termed a frenectomy procedure. At Functional Aesthetic Dentistry, we provide the most effective and safest laser frenectomy with the help of experienced laser dentist in Summerlin, trusted by pediatricians, lactation specialists, and parents.
People travel from faraway places for our safe and efficient frenulum cut laser operations because we are the most skilled laser dentists in Summerlin. It doesn’t matter if the baby has a lip tie or a tongue tie that needs to be treated; we ensure the best results.
Our pediatric dental clinic has invested in advanced soft tissue dentistry equipment in addition to having caring laser dentists in Summerlin with years of experience using laser frenectomy or upper lip tie and tongue tie release.
Lip and Tongue Ties: Their Symptoms
The tissue that joins the upper lip to the upper gums is known as a lip tie (labial tie). This tissue can sometimes be both too tight and too thick. This can result in lip mobility problems.
A lip tie (upper lip tie) is associated with breastfeeding and is mostly found in newborns and infants. Lip ties can be determined by difficulties latching while breastfeeding, gassy or colicky babies, newborn fatigue soon after starting to nurse, poor weight gain, and other symptoms. In addition, the tight upper lip may trap milk, whether breastfed or bottle-fed, causing the milk to constantly come into contact with the front of the teeth. This could lead to dental decay.
A tongue tie, also termed as Ankylglossia, occurs when the frenulum that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth is too short, which limits the tongue’s range of motion.
The tongue appearing notched, heart-shaped, or having trouble extending over the lower front teeth is the symptom of a tongue tie. Another sign to look for is trouble moving the tongue from side to side or raising it to the upper teeth. The majority of tongue ties in newborns and infants are related to nursing challenges. Toddlers may struggle with swallowing, speaking, eating, and oral hygiene. Since not all tongue ties result in issues for youths, they can also exist in adults.
The Frenectomy Procedure
A frenulectomy or frenectomy is the surgical removal of one or both frena from the mouth. Frena or frenum refers to the connective tissue membranes in the mouth that join one surface to another.
Sometimes the frenum is either too short, too tight, or too tough, but it does its function well. Its limited movement makes it challenging to do daily tasks like talking and eating, or it causes gaps in the smile, which diminishes aesthetics. The frenum is easily severed and also removed by skilled laser dentist in Summerlin at Functional Aesthetic Dentistry during a laser frenectomy to enable better movement. A low-risk, outpatient surgery, it usually fixes the problem the first time.
Earlier, the tongue and lip ties were treated by surgically removing the tissue with the help of a scalpel. A soft-tissue laser is now used to perform a laser frenectomy in Functional Aesthetic Dentistry, which involves laser excision of the frenulum. This process doesn’t involve cutting. Instead, the procedure is more like the vaporization of tissue, which also uses energy from light.
Due to the minimal discomfort caused by the laser, the procedure is a pain-free experience for your child. Additionally, because there is little bleeding after a laser lip or tongue tie release surgery, parents usually appreciate the technique. Additionally, lasers have a low risk of spreading infection and can sterilize immediately upon contact, hastening the healing process.
The cutting-edge laser frenectomy allows a laser dentist in Summerlin to rapidly and effectively cut through soft tissue with little trauma. In addition to lessening the bleeding, this also expedites the healing process. Laser frenectomies performed by a laser dentist in Summerlin at Functional Aesthetic Dentistry produce effective and fast results for infants, kids, and adults without the need for additional invasive surgeries or sutures.
Why Choose Laser Frenectomy?
A laser frenectomy can have a significant positive impact on your child’s health, including better breastfeeding success and the removal of dental issues linked to lip and tongue ties. In addition to these, reducing breast discomfort during nursing, allowing sufficient stimulation to increase the production of milk, decreasing discouragement and promoting a healthy mother-baby bond, reducing the risk of breast infections, and reducing the frequency of nursing so your infant can be content with each feeding, and relieving reflux, gassiness, and colic are amongst the many advantages of a laser frenectomy.
Future dental issues can be prevented with laser surgery for tongue and lip ties by a laser dentist in Summerlin at Functional Aesthetic Dentistry. The gap between your child’s upper two front teeth can be increased by a wide frenulum connecting the upper lip (maxillary midline diastoma).
Some lip ties can cause residual milk to pool under a baby’s lip, which can result in deterioration of the baby’s recently erupted teeth. Tongue or lip ties that are joined to the gums too closely risk pulling the gums away from the teeth. This gum tissue can lead to dental health problems and, in extreme cases, tooth loss. A tongue or lip tie can affect palatal development as well.
These potential dental issues that can arise due to tongue tie or lip tie can be prevented via a laser frenectomy procedure with the help of laser dentists in Summerlin at Functional Aesthetic Dentistry. This laser surgery is additionally helpful in overcoming speech difficulties related to tongue or lip ties.
