Frenectomy

A frenectomy is used to treat a dysfunctional frenulum. A frenulum is a small piece of tissue found on your upper lip and your lower lip that attaches to your gums. Typically, a dysfunctional frenulum may hinder growth, development, proper speech, and breastfeeding in infants.

To treat the area, we may use a laser or scalpel to remove the frenulum. Children will be put under general anesthesia, while adults while be provided local anesthesia to the affected area. It is a minimally invasive surgery that can be done in as little as 15 minutes. After the procedure, you may experience little bleeding and a speedy recovery period.
