A laser frenectomy is a procedure that releases tissue from its attachment. In pediatric dentistry, it refers specifically to a procedure in which the tissue that connects the lips to the gums is cut or modified to allow proper movement in the mouth.
Dr. Norbo is highly trained and well-experienced in performing pediatric laser frenectomies.
Laser Frenectomy Benefits
There are many reasons that a pediatric dentist might need to perform a frenectomy on a child, such as allowing for proper palatal development, tooth spacing, or speech development.
In newborns, frenectomies are most commonly performed in order to improve the infant’s ability to breastfeed.
Laser frenectomies are less invasive than conventional frenectomies. They minimize pain and discomfort, blood loss, the chance of infection, and recovery time.
