Frenotomy in Lafayette, LA
Frenulectomy Eliminates Tongue-Tie
Surgery to remove excess muscle tissue from the inside of your mouth could be the fastest and easiest surgery you ever experience. When troubled by a frenulum that ties your tongue to the bottom of your mouth, seek a frenulectomy in Lafayette, LA, from Quest Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics.
What Happens During Frenulectomy Surgery
On the average, a frenulectomy requires about 15 minutes for the actual surgery. What our dentist does is use a scalpel or laser to snip the lingual frenulum, which is muscle that connects the floor of the mouth to the bottom of the tongue. Surgery is done with general anesthesia and very little blood. The snip is sewed up with recovery taking only a couple of weeks. Reach out to our dental practice for greater detail about a frenulectomy.
Life Is Better after Tongue-Tie Surgery
Getting a frenulectomy yields a host of benefits. You no longer have trouble with eating or speaking as your tongue can move freely in your mouth. This is especially important for nursing infants as a frenulum can make it difficult or impossible to breastfeed. Toddlers who are learning to speak can have a hard time getting others to understand them when their tongues cannot touch the teeth and gums correctly to form sounds. Adults who suffer from a large or long frenulum have similar challenges with speaking and eating. Improve your life with a safe and simple frenulectomy.
