When your child needs a frenectomy, we will release the band of tissue that is connected to their tongue and/or upper lip. This process allows for your child’s lip or tongue to have a full range of motion, improving their eating habits and speech.
The traditional way to perform a frenectomy is to use a scalpel and sutures. Although completely safe and effective, there are some drawbacks to this method of treatment. Not only is it known to cause greater discomfort for the patient, but it does not allow the pediatric dentist in Katy to be as precise. Oftentimes, because the patient is an infant (in most cases), it can be much harder to remove as little tissue as possible when they are moving around and upset.
