Frenectomy - Salem, OR

How Can a Laser Frenectomy Improve My Child’s Life?

What is a Frenectomy?

A frenum is a small fold of soft tissue that restricts the movements of a part of your body. Frenula can be found in several areas of your body but dentists work with those found in the mouth. When these oral frenula constrict the movement of the lips or tongue a patient can experience a number of oral issues that affect speech, esthetics, and with little ones; breastfeeding. A frenectomy allows us to remove the constricting frenum and restore the health and function of the mouth.
