Discover the Confidence that Comes With Superb Dental Care – Set Your First Appointment Today!

A frenectomy is the removal of excess connective tissue (called the frenum) from under the tongue or upper gums. The excess tissue can cause a speech impediment or trouble with chewing, so frenectomies are a freeing surgery for patients who need it.

With modern technologies like dental lasers, a frenectomy is a pain-free, simple surgery with a quick recovery. Give us a call today and see if a frenectomy can help you!

Who Needs A Frenectomy?

Most of the time, children under the age of ten need a frenectomy because excess frenum tissue causes them to have trouble speaking or eating early on. However, frenectomies are an important part of orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages since a long or short frenulum can cause tooth or jaw displacement. 

Tips For A Fast


  • Take pain medication as recommended by the dentist
  • Ice the outside of your mouth to decrease swelling
  • Eat soft foods and liquids
  • Rest for 24 to 48 hours
