Benefits of Frenectomy

A frenectomy is a simple and minimally invasive procedure that can significantly impact your oral health. Using laser dentistry, Dr. Ochoa and Dr. Collantes can safely and effectively remove any oral frenulum restricting the mouth or causing discomfort. Additionally, this procedure can reduce the risk of infection and gum recession while improving speech. In infants, a laser frenectomy can improve latching and breastfeeding problems. Plus, because lasers are so precise, a frenectomy with a laser is typically very quick and virtually painless.

Expect Caring and Compassionate Care

Delivering dental care with empathy and kindness is vital to patients of all ages. Once you sit in one of our comfortable dental chairs, here’s what one can expect:


To begin, the dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you have frenum problems causing difficulty with functions such as talking, eating, or drinking. Then, the dentist will select the best type of frenectomy for your situation.


Dr. Ochoa and Dr. Collantes apply a special dental gel to protect it during the procedure. Once this is done, the dentist will use a laser beam to carefully remove excess frenum tissue to ensure proper movement of your gums and lips.


Regarding oral surgery, rest assured that the experienced team is competent and will do their best to ensure your safety and convenience throughout the process! Aftercare instructions from your dentist should be followed closely following a frenectomy to ensure proper healing.
