Is Laser Best for a Tongue Release?

Well sort of. When it boils down to it, it is not the tool that is used, but rather the hands and the brain of a knowledgeable provider completing the tongue release. In fact, it is very important to recognize that it is not the tool that does that job. One of the misconceptions for many is that you need to have a laser for the release of an infant. Just because a provider has a laser does not mean they are qualified to complete a release. Make sure that you are asking the provider questions about the frequency of releases that they complete, the recent training that they have taken, and that you work with a knowledgeable professional to help monitor wound care and work to achieve overall function of the tongue after release.
