Conference Brochure

Pediatric Tongue- and Lip-Ties: Diagnosis and Treatment with Soft-Tissue Lasers (3-Day Hands-On Course) is organized by Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and will be held during Jun 07 - 09, 2018 at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 19 Credit Hours.

Course Description:
In this combination lecture and hands-on course, attendees will be introduced to the concept of laser frenectomies, an increasingly popular method by which dentists and physicians can treat tongue- and lip-ties in their patients.

As many as 5% of all babies born in the United States have tongue-ties significant enough to cause breastfeeding difficulties. This condition can cause a plethora of problems for both babies (difficulty transferring milk, lack of growth) and their mothers (sore or cracked nipples, mastitis, and low milk supply). Babies with tongue-ties can be erroneously labelled as “lazy nurses,” “stubborn feeders' or as “failures to thrive.” They may also be erroneously diagnosed with GI problems, when all that is needed is a simple 30-second frenectomy to release the tongue-tie, the result of which is to restore the baby's ability to efficiently feed.

In this course, attendees will receive an overview of best practices regarding tongue- tie assessment and treatment, and will participate in a hands-on workshop on how to remove tongue-ties through the use of soft-tissue lasers. They will also have the opportunity to watch the live video feed of infant frenectomies, as well as hearing from an office administrator about billing and reimbursement issues.

Conference Objectives are :
• Understand infant feeding physiology and how tongue- and lip-ties impair infant intake
• Use reliable diagnostic criteria to screen babies for Ankyloglossia
• Understand all of the consequences and benefits of using lasers to release tongue- and lip-ties
• Be able to perform tie releases on infants
• Understand how some structural issues that impact feeding can be addressed with the use of a variety of Bodywork techniques

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
