- We extract milk teeth under computer-controlled local anaesthesia – The Wand.
- We perform labial frenuloplasty (upper and lower lip).
Labial or lingual frenuloplasty
Labial or lingual frenuloplasty is a short (it literally takes a couple of minutes) and completely painless procedure. It is made with a special laser which allows to eliminate bleeding. Frenuloplasty is performed at the recommendation of an orthodontist, speech therapist or a paediatric dentist, in order to improve the mobility of the upper or lower lip. Lingual frenuloplasty is recommended if the lingual frenulum interferes with speech function.
Lingual frenuloplasty is a short and painless procedure. It is also performed with the use of a laser, so there is no bleeding. The procedure is to improve the mobility of the tongue. A child with a tight lingual frenulum (the so-called tongue-tie) has problems with pronouncing sounds, despite ceaseless exercises. Therefore, the decision about lingual frenuloplasty is most often taken by a speech therapist or an orthodontist.
