Services We Offer


Tongue ties

In infants, an elongated lingual frenum may make it difficult to nurse or to feed sufficiently from a bottle. A child with this condition is commonly referred to as being "tongue-tied." If the abnormality is left uncorrected until the patient's toddler years, the child could experience difficulties in speech. Fortunately, a basic frenotomy can be performed quickly and with minimal pain during the first few weeks of birth.

Dr. Z is a certified expert in frenulum treatment and inspection by the Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional therapists - in other words, she REALLY knows what she's doing.
Kids have a painless experience with the Waterlase laser technology.
Your child will see immediate results with feeding and speech post-surgery.
Z Pediatric Dentistry is the only office in Pearland to offer these services!

No fear

We provide 3 options, if necessary, to help your child have a more comfortable experience at our office.

Nitrous oxide
Nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, is great for older children who are a little nervous about their visit and have a few cavities.
Oral sedation
Oral sedation, what we refer to as 'our juice', is great for younger children who are nervous about their visit and have a few cavities.

"This is THE best pediatric dentist. Hands down. Their office is clean, the staff are the sweetest and Dr. Z? Absolutely amazing. Dr. Z caught a tongue tie in our child last year when everyone else dismissed our concerns and blamed his symptoms on other things. I wish we would have found Dr Z sooner and avoided all the useless medication other drs put him on, but nonetheless we are extremely glad we found her. The frenectomy procedure went well and now I have a little talking/eating machine. I honestly believe if Dr. Z did not catch this, my 2 year old would still be non verbal and a terrible eater. I can't thank Dr. Z enough!"

"I absolutely love this place! My daughter got her lip tie and tongue tie fixed here and she is feeding so much better now! The staff is so friendly and made me comfortable before my 2 month old had the procedures done. We live in tomball but drive way out here because it’s such a wonderful place."

"Dr. Rasheed is amazing! She recently did laser frenectomy on my grandchild’s lip and tongue tie. The procedure only lasted about 10 minutes and our little one was feeding better immediately. My DIL’s milk supply doubled and baby now has a beautiful latch and stronger suck. She is much happier when eating and healed very quickly. I’ve been a feeding therapist for many years and know this procedure is often necessary. So glad to have Dr. Rasheed in Pearland!!!!"
