The muscles of the cheeks and lips are attached to the gums and tissue of the mouth by a piece of soft tissue called a frenum. Sometimes our Grand Rapids dentists may notice a frenum that is attached too high on the gums causing either recession or gaps between teeth.
In addition, 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. Sometimes this is referred to as being “tongue-tied”.
A frenectomy is a simple procedure where either part or all of the frenum in question is removed using a special dental laser in order to return a healthy balance to the mouth.
If you or your child require laser dentistry to remove soft tissue located underneath the tongue or above the front teeth, we can help. To schedule an appointment with one of our Grand Rapids, MI, family dentists, call Contemporary Family Dental at (616) 209-3969, or contact us online.
