Frenectomy

The muscles of the cheek and lips are attached to the gums and tissue of the mouth by a piece of soft tissue called a frenum.  Sometimes a frenum can be attached too high on the gums causing recession or spaces between teeth. There is another frenum under the tongue. If this frenum is attached too close to the end of the tongue it can adversely affect swallowing and speech. It may also cause breastfeeding complications. This is referred to as being "tongue-tied". A frenectomy is a safe and simple procedure where either part or all of the frenum in question is removed in order ot maintain a healthy balance to the mouth.

Dr. Darcy performs infant frenectomies at both Riverdale Pediatric Dentistry and St. Croix Kidds Dentistry. Please call for a consultation.
