What is laser frenectomy?

Posted by Dr. Abeyta on Nov 25 2015, 04:37 AM

Laser frenectomy is a dental procedure that can be performed for children and adults to correct a tongue-tie. Tongue-ties are fairly common and impact one out of three or four babies. A tongue-tie occurs when a thin piece of tissue (frenulum) attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth.

The frenulum can sometimes cause difficulty eating, breathing, and speaking. Laser frenectomy can be performed to shorten the frenulum. The procedure is quick and pain-free. The frenulum will be cut, and the laser cauterizes it, which will allow it to be absorbed naturally by the body.
