We’re excited to announce the addition of laser frenectomy procedures to treat tongue and lip-ties using the innovative LightScalpel CO2 Laser technology at the Center for Orofacial Myology! This advanced system allows us to safely, precisely, and comfortably release restricted frena with faster healing compared to traditional techniques.

The LightScalpel’ CO2 Lasers’ highly concentrated beam vaporizes the frenulum tissue while sealing blood vessels at the same time. Benefits for patients include:

  • Minimal bleeding and need for sutures during the procedure
  • Less post-op swelling, pain, and risk of infection
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Reduced scarring due to less collateral tissue damage
  • Precise results from the laser’s fine beam and ergonomic handpieces

The LightScalpel CO2 Laser is designed specifically to optimize frenuloplasty outcomes in the delicate oral cavity. Our skilled providers can accurately treat even the tightest lip and tongue-ties without trauma to surrounding structures.

If your child suffers from speech or feeding difficulties, you may want to explore whether restricted frena are the cause. Contact us to see if laser frenectomy is right for your situation. We’re proud to offer this advanced technology to provide gentle, effective release of tongue and lip-ties!
