Frenectomy - Beaverton, OR

Minimally-Invasive Laser Frenectomies

What is a Frenectomy?

Chances are that you may have never heard of a frenectomy. Many of our patients are unaware of this valuable service until they are faced with one of the many dental issues that are caused by a troubling frenum. A frenum is a small fold of soft tissue that restricts the movements of certain organs in your body. As dentists, we work with labial and lingual frenula. The removal of these frenula is called a frenectomy. In pediatric dentistry, frenectomies allow us to restore movement to the lips and tongue to correct a variety of problems that impede a child’s ability to breastfeed, and later, their speech.
