Maxillary Frenectomy

A Frenectomy / Frenulectomy is a surgical procedure that removes or loosens a band of muscle tissue that is connected to the lip, cheek or floor of the mouth. It is usually performed under local anesthetic with uneventful healing. We do provide this dental procedure at this location and Dr. Lucy does use Laser to do the procedure so there is NO pain.


Frenectomies can be safely and efficiently released with the soft tissue 10,600 nm CO2 laser with predictable and repeatable tissue response, fast ablation and instant hemostasis. The extremely precise cutting, minimal collateral damage, clear and bloodless operating field, make the CO2 laser a good choice for frenectomy procedures. CO2 laser oral surgery also features less wound contraction and reduced scarring in comparison with scalpel incisions.
