Pediatric frenectomy in Bloomfield, NJ

What Is A Frenectomy?

A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that removes or releases tissue from around the lips or tongue. This procedure can be performed on both children and adults but is most commonly used for infants who have difficulty breastfeeding due to tightness in their upper lip or tongue tie (ankyloglossia). The goal of this procedure is to release any tension caused by these tissues so that normal movement can occur without pain or discomfort. It also helps improve speech development as well as eating habits in young children.

How Does It Help My Child?

Frenectomies are beneficial for many reasons including improved oral hygiene, improved speech development, improved feeding habits, and even enhanced facial aesthetics! Removing the excess tissue from around the lips or tongue allows for more freedom when speaking which improves articulation as the child matures! Additionally, since there will be less tension on the lips when eating and it will make swallowing easier, thus potentially reducing choking incidents during meal time! Lastly, if you’re concerned about how this might affect your child’s appearance, don’t worry because after healing has occurred there should be no scarring or evidence of the procedure.
