What is a laser frenectomy?

In your mouth, the frenum is a piece of tissue which connects in two places:

  1. The base of the tongue
  2. Beneath the upper lip

Sometimes the frenum is too short, too high, or attached too close to the tip of the tongue. In these cases, a frenectomy is a simple procedure that uses a high-tech laser to remove this connective tissue and allows for normal tongue function and optimal dental and gum health.

Frequently asked questions

 

Does my child need a frenectomy?

Your pediatrician or dentist is often the first to recommend a frenectomy. Dr. Li is great with patients of all ages and will make the consultation easy. After a quick but thorough examination and discussion with you, he will diagnose and or provide a second opinion on whether or not a frenectomy is right for your child.

Is laser frenectomy painful?

While traditional frenectomies involve scalpels, laser frenectomies are typically performed with local anesthetic. It’s a very gentle procedure without excess bleeding or any high risk of infection or complications

How long does it take a laser frenectomy to heal?

Because the laser is minimally invasive and cauterizes as it cuts, you or your child will be back to normal and feeling great soon after treatment.
