Imagine The Joy You Feel. Your Child Is Born. The Doctor Says You Have A Healthy Baby....
The nurse hands you your infant so you can start bonding the first time you breastfeed. Now imagine how you feel when the baby can’t get a proper latch. A basic job of a mother is to feed their child, right? The nurse provides some instruction. A lactation specialist is brought in to go through more instruction and provide a hand. Still, you are unable to breastfeed. And the pain! Your infant diligently tries to feed and puts their little lips where they are supposed to be but immediately slides down, pinching your nipples between their cute little gums but they HURT!
You go to the doctor again and they still see nothing wrong. You ask friends about it and one of them says; that sounds like tongue tie. Does your dentist do laser procedures? Maybe you should go see her to get it checked.
I know. A dentist for a newborn. Crazy, right? Actually no.
Have you ever heard of TOTS, either tongue-tie or lip-tie before? If not, that wouldn’t be unusual.
Currently only 4 – 10%* of newborn children are diagnosed with either or both.
And does my DENTIST even know how Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTS); Ankyloglossia (Tongue-Tie) or Tethered Superior Labial Frenum (Lip-Tie) can effect breastfeeding?

My experience at South Airdrie smiles was great. I felt that Dr.Sung was very thorough and took the time to explain things well. I greatly appreciate his patience,clarity and knowledge. I also had a cleaning with the hygienist Nicole and she was so conciencious and very gentle. I highly reccomend this clinic!
Update# 2: Amazing as always. This time I had Jind as my hygienist and she was so thorough! She had me hold a mirror as she showed a few things happening in my mouth and gave great explanations. She was so kind and kept checking throughout the cleaning to make sure everything was okay. Update: Once again, an amazing experience at South Airdrie Smiles! I have to say how impressed I am with one of the Office Admins, Stephanie. We have been working together to get some issues sorted out with my insurance and Stephanie has been amazing through the whole process. Fantastic communication, always keeping in touch and giving updates and very understanding when it comes to working around my schedule. She is a pleasure to deal with and always has a smile on her face 😊
First review: Had such a great experience today at South Airdrie Smiles! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. My dentist did an amazing job with my fillings, explaining things to me as she worked and even applying chapstick to keep my lips from hurting. Didn't feel any pain at all, even with the big needles for freezing. Would highly recommend!
