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. Kris is highly trained and well-experienced in performing pediatric laser frenectomies.
Laser Frenectomy Benefits
- Child Development: 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.
- Improve Breastfeeding: In newborns, frenectomies are most commonly performed in order to improve the infant’s ability to breastfeed.
- Less Invasive: Laser frenectomies are less invasive than conventional frenectomies. They minimize pain and discomfort, blood loss, the chance of infection, and recovery time.
