Are you struggling with discomfort or restricted movement due to a tight or restrictive frenulum? The experienced team at Indianapolis Dentistry is here to provide you with a safe, efficient, and advanced solution – adult frenectomy performed using state-of-the-art Fotona Laser technology.
"A frenectomy is a simple surgical procedure where either part or all of the frenum in question is clipped or removed in order to restore a healthy balance to the mouth. There are two ways to do this: a local anesthetic and a surgical incision or with the use of a special dental laser."
—Dr. Ted Reese
An adult frenectomy is a minor oral surgical procedure that involves the removal or modification of the frenulum – a small fold of tissue that connects the tongue, lips, or cheeks to the surrounding oral structures. Sometimes, a tight or thick frenulum can lead to issues such as difficulty speaking, eating, or maintaining proper oral hygiene, as well as contribute to orthodontic challenges.
At Indianapolis Dentistry, we prioritize patient comfort, precision, and efficiency. Our decision to utilize the Fotona Laser for adult frenectomy is based on the numerous benefits it offers:
Minimally Invasive: The Fotona Laser operates with incredible precision, targeting only the specific tissue needing adjustment while leaving surrounding tissues largely unaffected. This results in less trauma, minimal bleeding, and faster healing times.
Reduced Discomfort: The laser technology cauterizes blood vessels and nerve endings as it works, reducing post-procedure discomfort and inflammation.
Quick and Efficient: The Fotona Laser enables our skilled dentists to perform the frenectomy procedure quickly and efficiently, often in a single visit.
Minimal Bleeding: The laser's precise cutting action seals blood vessels as it goes, leading to minimal bleeding during and after the procedure.
Faster Recovery: The gentle nature of the laser technology promotes quicker tissue regeneration and healing, allowing you to return to your daily activities with minimal downtime.
Consultation: Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation. Our team will assess your oral health, discuss your concerns, and determine if an adult frenectomy is the right solution for you.
Personalized Treatment Plan: If an adult frenectomy is recommended, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and preferences.
Fotona Laser Procedure: On the day of the procedure, you'll be comfortably seated while the Fotona Laser is used to precisely adjust the frenulum. The procedure is minimally invasive and generally well-tolerated.
Aftercare: We will provide you with clear post-procedure instructions to ensure optimal healing. Most patients experience minimal discomfort and are able to resume regular activities shortly after the procedure.
Follow-Up: Our team will schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing progress and address any concerns you may have.
