BERKELEY, Calif., June 24, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Keith Chertok, esteemed periodontist serving Berkeley, CA, offers life-changing frenectomies for those with lip ties and tongue ties as well as sleep-disordered breathing. Recently completing a three-day training titled, The Breathe Course, Dr. Chertok offers a collaborative approach to care with multispecialty teams including myofunctional therapists and sleep surgeons.
The Breathe Institute offers a functional approach to breathing and wellness. A global pioneer in airway support and breathing-related healthcare education, this team of clinicians takes a comprehensive and multispecialty take to treatment planning. With an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of airway management, they offer a well-rounded approach to care.
One of their influential trainings, The Breathe Course, is a three-day workshop based on teachings by their esteemed team including the acclaimed otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat surgeon) Dr. Soroushi Zaghi. A periodontist himself with over three decades of experience offering expert periodontal treatments, Dr. Chertok worked alongside these distinguished clinicians to further expand his skill set and be able to truly offer the latest advancements in his field.
Restrictive frenula, or the tissue that attaches the lips and tongue to the mouth, can lead to long-term systemic issues if left untreated. A frenectomy gently releases this tissue allowing for proper function. Frenectomies that release lip ties can be a precursor to orthodontic treatment, helping front teeth come together effectively. In other cases, it can help prevent gum recession. For those with untreated tongue ties, the upper palate may not expand properly because the tongue cannot reach it. This can lead to malocclusion, speech difficulties, airway problems, and sleep apnea later in life.
Dr. Chertok works alongside a multispecialty team including myofunctional therapists to fully develop treatment plans for patients with tongue ties and lip ties. When a frenectomy is paired with exercises from a myofunctional therapist many children are able to prevent harmful breathing limitations and speech complications from developing at all.
Dr. Chertok offers frenectomies using Dr. Zaghi's renowned technique at his state-of-the-art periodontal practice in Berkeley, CA. To receive a consultation and find out if a frenectomy is needed, patients can call 510-548-0150 or visit his website at http://www.berkeleyperiodontist.com.
