Additional advantages to laser frenectomy or frenotomy procedures include little to no bleeding or discomfort, reduced chance of infection, and the promotion of fast healing. The clinic’s updated treatments sterilize the surgical site upon contact with the laser and stimulate tissue regeneration for fast recovery.
Tongue-tie occurs when the tissue-band (frenulum), connecting the tongue to the mouth floor is unusually short and limits tongue movement. Lip-tie is caused when the frenulum behind the upper lip is too tight, limiting lip movement. Both conditions can impair breastfeeding and swallowing and affect oral hygiene and speech.
A Bioinformation study that compared surgical and laser frenectomy healing outcomes confirmed that lasers provide better healing results. The website describes how the clinic’s procedures cause such little discomfort, that some babies sleep through them.
