Frenectomy is a procedure used to release the lip or tongue frenum.

A restrictive lip and/or tongue frenum (tie) could be the reason why your child is having feeding  difficulties, speech issues and/or improper jaw development. 

Benefits of using a laser to carry out a frenectomy

Here at our dental office, our pediatric dentists use a CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) laser to carry out this procedure. There are several benefits of using a laser:

  • Minimal bleeding
  • Minimal discomfort
  • The procedure is rapid
  • Clean and disinfected wound

The procedure can also be performed on newborn babies. As a restrictive lip or tongue may interfere with breastfeeding. This frenectomy could help to relieve your child from daily struggles.
