Is your child having trouble speaking or eating? If so, it may be due to a tongue- or lip-tie. This condition is caused when the frenulum, a small fold of tissue which connects one part of your mouth to another, is unusually short or thick, preventing proper chewing, eating and speaking. If untreated, these connective tissues may also cause gum recessions or gaps between the upper front teeth. Our dentist offers frenectomies to remove this connective tissue and improve your child’s oral health and function.
Here at Adept Dental Shafter, we use the advanced Solea® laser to perform frenectomies. Procedures performed using this laser are:
- More comfortable
- More precise
- Less likely to require long recovery time
Frenectomies are quick and comfortable to perform. In fact, they can usually be completed in a single visit to our office! Dr. Olivia Park will take care to ensure that your child is comfortable during their treatment and will provide detailed post-op care instructions afterward to help ensure proper healing and recovery following their procedure.
