After experiencing her own Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders stemming from a tongue-tie, Dr. Zolnierczyk (IL) sought out to educate herself about tongue-ties and how to best treat infants, children and adults. Dr. Zolnierczyk believes in a team approach to help all patients achieve the best results from a tongue-tie revision and shares her StellaLife patients' experience.
“Healing is a lot better, so I do a lot of frenectomies, so when I do a frenectomy, I always use StellaLife. I have the patients take it home with them so they have a lot less post-op sensitivity. The healing process is a lot smoother for them, swelling is a lot less than before. So that is a big improvement. I use it personally, so off label use, if I feel like I'm getting a cold, I will gargle with StellaLife all the time just to kind of get all the healing properties and my inflammation down a little bit. We use it for our perio patients. After they do scaling and replanting we give them StellaLife instead of Chlorohexidine.”
