The Basics of Laser Frenectomy Treatment
Every medical laser emits a concentrated beam of light, and the frequency and intensity of this light can be adjusted depending on the procedure that needs to be performed. In our office, the laser allows Dr. Ursitti to fix a lip or tongue-tie with extreme precision while minimizing discomfort for the patient. It also offers an extraordinary level of accuracy, which is especially important considering that she often treats infants!
Why Parents Love Laser Frenectomies
The laser itself emits almost no heat, sound, or vibration, so treatment is very comfortable for the patient. Because of this, little to no anesthetic is necessary, and a child does not have to be knocked out to complete treatment. This makes the process much easier, faster, and less stressful. Plus, the laser has been shown to shorten the recovery time compared to other methods of performing frenectomies, which enables parents and children to start enjoying the benefits of the procedure as quickly as possible.
