Pre- and Post-Op Frenectomy
A Frenectomy procedure address issues of 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 dentures.
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.
