Does the tissue that connects your lips and gums look a bit too short or thick? Is it causing problems for you or a loved one? At Seven Dental, we provide frenectomies in Phoenix for our patients that are interested in correcting their frenulum which is causing complications.
Have you ever noticed the piece of tissue the connects your lips to your gums? For most people these develop properly, allowing for proper speech and teeth placement. However, certain patients may have a frenulum that causes breastfeeding issues, teeth misalignment, and even speech problems. In the event that a patient’s frenulum is disrupting proper development, movement or growth, we recommend a corrective frenectomy; it can improve the appearance, function, and health of your smile.
The entire frenectomy process is actually quite simple and typically takes less than 15 minutes. At Seven Dental we use laser technology to provide frenectomies which heal quicker, have less bleeding and typically less risk. For children receiving a frenectomy, general anesthesia may be recommended. For adults, we recommend local anesthesia.
