Is Laser Frenectomy a Better Choice for You or Your Child than Traditional Surgery?
When it comes to comfort, convenience, and recovery, laser treatments have raised the standard in dentistry. Safe and effective, they decrease the risk of infection, while speeding the rate of healing. Traditionally, a dentist may cut a restricted frenulum with scalpels or scissors but with laser frenectomy, there is no need for incisions or stitches, the laser light quickly separates and cauterizes the frenulum for enhanced mobility. Laser frenectomy, performed by a skilled dentist like Dr. Miner, can provide you or your child with the following benefits:
- No need for injections, just a topical anesthetic
- Minimized bleeding and swelling
- Less discomfort after the procedure
- Faster healing
- Decreased risk of reattachment
