Here an oral surgeon was the first recommendation... BTW, in case any future mama is looking in my area, http://www.osalansing.com/ does all ages, all types of tongue and maxillary ties, and they use a laser. They do not accept my insurance, however, ($375/procedure. Not totally outrageous by far, but more than we can afford now) so I'm still hunting. Mid-MI ENT does both (they also did my 9 yr old's tonsillectomy), they do not use a laser, and they will put my 7 year old under anesthesia in the hosp to do it, so I'm not thrilled about using them. However, they do accept insurance... Difficult decisions.
ETA, took my kids to Mid_MI ENT to have them looked at today. They do NOT do both, only tongue, and they do not use GA... Guess the person that answers the phone knows nothing. And he looked at my kids with type 3 and 4 and said he wouldn't do them, that there's no reason to and it's dangerous to get so close to the salivary glands. Sigh. Off to find another lead. Just wanted to post in case anyone else in the area is ever looking, they know not to waste their time.
