And they are just dumb. Seriously.

He says he didn't think it would be a problem because it's not holding his lip back and he can talk and you can understand him. I mentioned that it was causing issues while nursing and he got a surprised look on his face and said "he is still breastfeeding?"

Ugh, ugh, ugh. I did make an appointment with his dentist and they are pediatric dentists so hopefully we'll get someone who knows what the heck they are talking about.

There is a provider in Reisterstown who will be you best fit in my opinion. He is on Dr. Kotlow's list of one who uses laser to revise. I'm not sure if that's too far from you or not. Let me know and I can give you the contact information. Before going to the pediatric dentist, I would suggest calling them and talking to them on the phone. Ask them what they think of upper lip ties, tongue ties, and posterior tongue ties (this is the most important as many don't know they exist). Ask them what procedure they use and if they use any anesthesia. Find out if they do it in the office or in the hospital. Laser in the office is the safest option and it only takes a few minutes. When the tie is cut, it's often only partially cut, there is bleeding, and more chance for infection.

That's not too far at all. It's between where I live and Baltimore City, so about 40 minutes. I can do Reisterstown. Thanks!
