Frenectomy

Underneath the tongue is a another frenum that connects the tongue to the floor of your mouth, called the lingual frenum.  When this frenum is restrictive, it prevents the proper of use of the tongue, making eating and speaking difficult.  A frenectomy allows the tongue to function properly again.  Using a laser provides benefits to the comfort of this procedure.
