A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that removes frenum, a fold of tissue in the mouth. Frenum restricts the motion of a mobile organ on the body. Sometimes, if too short or too thick, it can cause speech problems and tooth misalignment. It can be found between the two upper teeth and underneath the tongue.

When the frenulum disrupts movement, growth, or development, a corrective action is necessary to resolve the problem.

Adults and children looking for frenectomy treatment can get the frenulum removed at a dental clinic. This treatment can be performed with either a scalpel or laser, and takes less than 15 minutes. The laser treatment is a more reliable and convenient option as it doesn’t require stitches. Also, it is less painful and the healing time is reduced significantly after the laser treatment process. Children and infants are put under general anesthesia for the procedure, while adults have the procedure performed using local anesthesia. The laser treatment procedure is very successful and causes minimal discomfort.
