Frenectomy & Ankylosed Tongue Release

A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure used to remove or reduce the size of a frenum, which is a small band of tissue that connects the lip, tongue, or cheek to the jawbone. Laser frenectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to quickly and precisely cut or remove the frenum. The procedure is usually done in the doctor’s office with topical anesthesia without injection. After the procedure, the patient will experience minimal pain and discomfort, and the healing process is usually complete within a few days. The patient should follow the doctor’s instructions for post-operative care, which may include avoiding certain foods and activities.
