Tongue or Lip Tie Surgery in Richmond, TX
You have several frenula – small leaves of tissue – in your mouth. Normally, a frenulum presents no problems. However, cases arise where a frenulum may cause issues. In these situations, a minor surgical procedure called a frenectomy might be necessary.
The frenulum is cut during a frenectomy to provide free movement to the tongue or other oral structures. The procedure may also be necessary to allow dentures or other prosthetics to fit appropriately. The surgery is typically brief, and the recovery period is usually rapid.
You can trust the expert dentists at Haven Dentistry for your frenectomy and other oral surgery and dental care needs. For questions or to schedule your appointment, please contact Haven Dentistry now.
