CHOOSE US because at Chapman Mills Dental we are highly trained to provide a high quality of service. Not only do we understand the oral tethered tissue, but we understand breastfeeding.
Our appointments are three fold: Most of our patients are referred to us by a lactation consultant, dentist or physician. Our referral form is available on this site.
The first step of treatment consists of an examination of your child and consultation with Dr. Fayad. Secondly, if diagnosed, the frenulum will be revised and treated using a laser. Laser is superior to other modalities, as it reduces bleeding and promotes faster healing. This treatment can be performed at the time a positive diagnosis is made, or can be scheduled at a later date.
Finally, a short 10 minute post-operative appointment usually scheduled 3 weeks later to confirm that healing is going well. For those patients that are from out of town and find it inconvenient to return for the follow-up visit, good quality photos can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org where Dr. Fayad will review them and make comments or suggestions toward ongoing care.
It is also imperative that all patients having treatment seek the aid of a certified lactation consultant for ongoing supportive care two days post-revision at the earliest.
