Frenectomy

There is a frenum that attaches your upper lip to the gum, while another connects the lower lip to the gum. A frenulum that is too short or thick, will cause problems in speech patterns, tooth misalignment and ultimately recession of the gum.

A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that is performed in the office. While this procedure can be performed a scalpel Dr. Edenbaum uses a soft tissue laser. Using a laser causes very little bleeding and does not require stitches. A laser also results in less postoperative discomfort and a shorter healing time. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia. If you or your child needs a frenectomy, there is nothing to worry about. The procedure is very successful and causes minimal discomfort.
