Lip- and tongue-ties can cause feeding problems and affect tooth development. Left untreated, they can continue to cause serious health and lifestyle problems into adulthood. Thankfully, these issues are easily and comfortably treated with laser frenectomies at Peach State Laser Periodontics & Implants.

A laser frenectomy offers many benefits over a traditional frenectomy and can be performed for children, teens and adults. Learn more or contact us today to request a consultation.

Dr G. Eric Li

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.

Why is a frenectomy needed?

A frenectomy for children can fix…
  • Digestive issues
  • Difficulty breastfeeding
  • Speech or airway difficulties
  • Dental spacing problems
A frenectomy for adults can fix…
  • Speech and eating difficulties
  • Clicking or painful jaws
  • Gum disease and gum recession
  • Inability to keep a denture in place

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 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.
