Tongue and lip tie

Led by Dr. Simone Landau, Jerusalem’s dental and tongue tie clinic, located in the city center, offers a comprehensive range of high quality dental and laser tongue and lip tie (Frenectomy) services rendered with the latest techniques, in a friendly and modern clinic.  

A mother of three, and a dentist with over a decade of experience, I know how breastfeeding is so important for the baby’s health, and for the mother-baby bond. Tongue-tie affects around 10% of newborn babies. 

Signs that your baby might need the procedure include difficulty attaching to the breast or difficulty staying attached for a full feed, feeding for a long time followed by a short break and then another feeding, the baby being generally unsettled and hungry all the time, and if the baby is not gaining weight. Tongue tie can also create problems for the mother, including sore or cracked nipples, low milk supply and mastitis.  

Laser tongue tie release is a very quick procedure – usually taking only 1-2 minutes. There is no need for stitches or anesthesia/sedation. Laser release involves minimal discomfort to your baby, and healing is fast. The baby can and should be fed immediately following the procedure.

Really Amazing Experience
1 year ago

I had an incredible experience with Dr. Landau! My 1 month old baby had a very tight tongue tie and was having trouble nursing. I was referred to Dr. Landau, and I was extremely impressed. From the time I first contacted her office until after the procedure, Dr. Landau and her staff were very polite, friendly, and professional. She checked my baby and explained the whole procedure, and was very gentle with the baby the entire time. Since she used laser technology, the whole procedure was quick and clean; he barely cried, didn't bleed, and he healed very quickly. She also followed up with me after the procedure, and assured me that she was always available if I had any more questions. If you are looking for a doctor to fix your baby's tongue tie, I highly recommend Dr. Landau.
