If your child is experiencing speech or eating problems due to issues with their frenum, your dentist might recommend a frenectomy. This safe and effective method can help your child overcome these challenges and improve their oral health and overall well-being.

What is a Frenectomy?

A frenectomy in pediatric dentistry is a simple surgical procedure that removes or reshapes a tight or thick piece of tissue (frenum) in a child’s mouth.

What Happens During a Frenectomy Procedure?

A skilled dentist or surgeon will carefully remove or reshape the tight or thick frenum in your child's mouth. Our clinic uses a CO2 laser, allowing precise and minimally invasive treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your child's comfort.

When is a Frenectomy Recommended?

  • Infants or young children experiencing difficulty nursing.
  • Older children or teens with speech or orthodontic issues caused by a tight frenum.
  • Kids with difficulty speaking clearly or articulating certain sounds due to a tight frenum.

What Are the Benefits of a Frenectomy?

A frenectomy can bring numerous benefits to your child's oral health and overall well-being. By undergoing this simple procedure, your child can experience improved speech clarity and alleviate difficulties with eating. In addition, a frenectomy can support orthodontic treatment by removing any obstructions that hinder the desired movement or alignment of their teeth.
