A frenectomy is a common procedure to treat lip-ties and tongue-ties. It involves trimming or removing the frenum (connective tissue) from under the gums or the tongue.

Frenectomies are necessary to help children eat and speak properly. They also improve the tongue’s range of motion and help your child’s teeth and jaw develop correctly.

Your doctor may recommend a frenectomy if your baby is having trouble nursing or feeding.

How do we do it?

  • We use dental sedation or local anesthesia to make your child comfortable
  • We use a dental laser to reduce or remove connective tissue from under the tongue or the gums
  • The laser provides a silent and stress-free environment for your child
  • We make sure the tissue remains separated to prevent reattachment
  • We provide you with post-op instructions to keep your child comfortable
