Sometimes making decisions for the betterment of your child’s health can be a bit overwhelming. At our dental practice in Plainfield, New Jersey, the Pediatrics on Park team does its best to make sure that we aid you in understanding what dental procedures are best for you and your child’s circumstances. In some cases laser dentistry can be an effective choice for your child.
We often use laser dentistry for frenectomy procedures, as it is effective and safe. A frenectomy is a common procedure that involves releasing excess pressure on the frenulum. The frenulum is the flap of connective tissue located beneath the upper lip or tongue. We often recommend this when the frenulum is too tight and restricting the range of motion within the mouth.
When a frenulum is restricted, it can cause tongue-tie or lip-tie, conditions that lead to digestive issues, difficulty breastfeeding, speech or airway difficulties, and dental spacing problems.
