Tongue Ties and Lip Ties at Glacier Dental

Glacier Dental offers a wide variety of services from routine hygiene visits to full mouth extractions and implant dentures. A unique service offered is reversal of tongue ties and lip ties. Glacier Dental was one of the first dental offices in Wisconsin to purchase a PerioLase, which is a laser used for suture free mouth surgeries. All three dentists at Glacier Dental are certified to use this laser for lip tie and tongue tie revisions. 

Whether your a mom with an infant who is lip tied or an adult who is tongue tied, Glacier Dental works with any age. Dr. Steckbauer has performed this procedure on infants as little as one week old. The process is quick and the healing time is fast as well. In fact, many moms are able to breastfeed immediately after the procedure and will notice a much better latch and a happier baby!

Some dental insurance companies will cover this procedure as well as some medical insurances. We would love to do a complimentary benefits check for you at your initial consultation and if everything goes well, the procedure can be done same day as well.  Please give our office a call and we'd love to reserve a spot for you with one of our certified Doctors! 235.3251

Glacier Dental offers custom sport guards

Custom sport mouth guards are becoming more and more popular among high school and college level sports teams...some coaches are actually requiring mouth guards to be custom versus homemade mouth. Luckily, Glacier Dental has the option to make custom guards right in office. The appointment itself takes less than 30 minutes.

Why are athletic directors requiring custom guards now? There are a few different reasons. Custom guards--the same guards professional players use--allow for better breathing and in return actually enhance performance. Mouth guards also protect athletes from expensive dental bills--loss of teeth, injured jaws or even concussions from jaw injuries. Glacier Dental highly recommends custom mouth guards to keep your young athletes, whether they're on the field, court or wrestling mat, protected and safe!

Another cool feature about the guards we create in office is the color selection. We have Packer and Badger colors, as well as all the Oshkosh area school district colors. Just let us know which color you or your athlete prefers.

If you're interested in setting up an appointment for your custom mouth guard, please call 235.3251 as space is limited. And if you call today, you'll receive an extra gift at your visit! We look forward to hearing from you soon!
