Frenectomy

frenectomy

A frenulum is a piece of tissue that attaches your upper and lower lips to the gums as well as the tongue to the floor of the mouth. A frenulum that is too short, too thick or attaches too closely to the gums will cause problems in speech patterns and tooth misalignment. In infants, a shortened frenulum underneath the tongue can inhibit breastfeeding. When the frenulum disrupts movement, growth, or development, corrective action may be necessary.

A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that can be performed at our office. It is usually performed with a laser and takes less than 10 minutes. Using a laser causes minimal bleeding and does not require stitches. If you have any questions about a frenectomy, please contact us at (979) 543-2737.
