Frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure most often performed on young individuals. The general dentists at Centre Dentaire Don Quichotte are able to perform this procedure, which is part of the dental surgery services we offer at our clinic in Île-Perrot. We provide gentle care to reassure our clients and prevent pain.
Our lips are connected to our jaw by small attachments called « labial frenulum ».There is a labial frenulum on the upper lip and one on the lower lip. Similarly, our tongue is connected to the lower jaw with the lingual frenulum. In some individuals, the length of the frenulum, or the way it attaches to the jaw, can cause oral health problems. If the lingual frenulum is too short, there could be problems with speaking and swallowing because tongue movements are then limited. As for the labial frenulum, the main problem concerns the way it attaches to the jaw. Indeed, a labial frenulum attached too close to the teeth may result in a very prominent diastema between the upper incisors, i.e. an irregular gap between the two upper front teeth. In other cases, a labial frenulum that is too short may cause a loosening of the teeth.
In the cases mentioned above, your dentist may recommend a frenectomy. This procedure is most often performed in children because their teeth are still developing. In most cases, we wait until the permanent canines have erupted. A frenectomy is performed to prevent potential problems.
Is this procedure painful?
It is important to understand that a frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure, whose objective is always to prevent damage that may occur over time, both aesthetically and functionally.
This procedure is always performed under local anesthesia, which means the client doesn’t feel any pain. This is a quick procedure that causes little to no postoperative pain or consequences.
Removing the frenulum, under anesthesia
The dentist injects a local anesthetic in the area to be treated. He then makes an incision or removes the frenulum, so that the frenulum is no longer connected to the jaw. This step is performed using a laser device.
