Who Needs a Laser Frenectomy?

Have you ever noticed the tissue connecting your lips and gums or tongue and mouth? These are called frenum (small folds of tissue which are used to connect “mobile organs”). Certain patients, however, have frenum which is too tight or even too low, leading to various issues like the inability to properly breastfeed.

What Is a Laser Frenectomy?

Until recently, a frenectomy was performed by cutting, snipping or removing the tissue, however with laser dentistry we can perform your frenectomy quicker, more effectively and less painfully. During the procedure, a laser will be used to remove the affected tissue. Due to using laser technology, most patients experience little to no bleeding and a quick recovery. Our laser frenectomy has various other benefits including:

  • No anesthesia required
  • Almost completely pain-free
  • Requires no stitches or sutures
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Little to no bleeding
  • It takes only a couple of minutes to perform
  • Has quicker healing and recovery
