Perform blood-free, suture-free frenectomies with minimal postoperative discomfort and remarkably rapid healing.

Releasing tethered oral tissues (TOTs) as early as possible can have sweeping effects on a patient’s health. TOTs can negatively impact breast feeding and swallowing, as well as facial, airway, dental, and speech development. Solea enables efficient and effective frenectomies on even the youngest of patients, often without the need for local anesthetic.

“I see patients from around the world because parents do not want to put their children through the ordeal of general anesthesia or the post-operative discomfort associated with traditional methods. Whether it is for infants who can’t breastfeed or older children with speech problems, Solea has allowed me to do frenectomies gently in my office without anesthesia, bleeding or discomfort, providing a better experience for both the children and their parents. ”

Lawrence Kotlow, DDS, PC
