Frenectomies and Functional Frenuloplasties are oral procedures aimed at improving oral functionality and enhancing overall oral health. Frenectomies involve the removal of a frenulum, a small band of tissue that connects the lips, tongue, or cheeks to the underlying tissue. By removing this restrictive tissue, frenectomies help to correct issues such as tongue tie or lip tie, which can interfere with speech, breastfeeding, and proper tooth alignment.
Functional Frenuloplasties, on the other hand, focus on modifying the frenulum to improve its functionality without complete removal. This procedure is often recommended when the frenulum is abnormally short or tight. At Cape Fear Smiles, our dental experts utilize advanced techniques and tools to perform safe and effective frenectomies and functional frenuloplasties, ensuring optimal results and improved oral function.
