Why would you need information on a pediatric dentist for a newborn? Well, unfortunately, we are seeing more and more mouth restriction issues now than we have ever seen. That or we just know more now and we are able to identify them and help families get the help they need. Mouth restrictions; aka tongue & lip ties are not always an issue, but when they are they need to be diagnosed and handled as quickly as possible to prevent breastfeeding issues, food issues, and/or speech concerns.
Part of the newborn exam is looking inside your baby's mouth to see if there are ties and if so we will give you this list of dentists that we trust.
