Laser Technology Produces Faster, Easier Frenectomies
For some people, the frenulum between the two front teeth and gums is too short. As a result, this lack of optimal range of the frenulum can provide difficulties to both children and adults. Moreover, it can diminish or get in the way of speaking properly, eating or aesthetics.
Cutting and/or complete removal of this flap of tissue is called a frenectomy and is a quick, comfortable experience. This of course, is thanks to the use of high-tech lasers. At our office, laser frenectomies are commonly done and are an uncomplicated process using laser dental techniques.
How Lasers Have Changed Frenectomy Treatments
For past generations, frenectomies required surgical instruments such as scalpels. As a result, the frenectomy procedure used to be less than pleasurable for the patient. However, since the advent of laser dental tools, the patient doctor experience has changed 180 degrees. So drastic is the change, that now lasers play an essential role in Endodontic procedures.
Now that we have the advantage of being able to depend upon high tech painless lasers. It allow us to quickly and efficiently cut through soft tissue with minimal amount of trauma. Not only is the bleeding lessened, but the healing time is decreased as well. Babies, children and adults who have laser frenectomies see immediate results without requiring more invasive procedures or sutures.
Why Oral Frenectomies May Be Necessary
An infant cannot effectively feed, leading to potential for malnourishment or dehydration.
Gum recession is beginning above the two front teeth due to the stress caused by inadequate frenulum tissue.
A space may develop between the two front teeth, causing a gap and potential crowding.
It is impossible to close the mouth or if breathing is effected by the frenulum.
Dentures cannot be considered because they fit improperly.
The frenulum is too short and is causing pain in the lip and gum area.
Post Laser Frenectomy Recovery
In general or for most patients, laser frenectomy is a fairly straight forward procedure. You should not experience any pain during recovery. You will notice some differences and you may need to practice speaking and eating properly to some extent. However, in the end, the procedure and post recovery will present new opportunities and potential.
For many patients, after receiving a frenectomy and once the recovery process is complete, they feel a new sense of confidence and accomplishment.
