Pre- and Post-Op Frenectomy
A Frenectomy procedure address issues of a condition known as tongue-tie or lip-tie which cause restrictions to mobility of the mouth’s normal movements. In infants this can cause problems with breastfeeding and palatal development. In children and adults tongue or lip-tie can effect proper tooth alignment, problems with speech or swallowing. Frenectomies are often performed in advance of dental orthodontics or even for patients undergoing denture treatment in order to get a proper fit.
Preparing correctly for a frenectomy can improve the procedure outcomes and the healing times. Combining orofacial myofunctional therapy along with the procedure helps to create new neuromuscular patterns for proper oral function.
