A frenectomy is a surgical procedure for releasing the tie or fusion of tissues under the tongue or upper lip for better range of tongue motion. The procedure is performed in children who are born with a condition called as a tongue-tie or a lip-tie. This condition leads to restrictions in movement causing difficulty with breastfeeding, speech, airway difficulties and digestive issues.

Problems that can occur with a tongue-tie:
When the upper lip remains fused or attached to the upper gum tissues, then the condition is termed as a lip-tie or high frenum attachment. The condition can cause various challenges including:
The dental surgeon initiates the procedure with few drops of anesthetic to numb the area. The laser beams are directed to the targeted area to vaporize the tissues. The actual procedure takes 3-5 minutes clearing the gums and releasing the tongue or the lip.
After the procedure, mild soreness is experienced for few days. The recovery and healing time is less when compared to the traditional methods.
