Maxillary Frenectomy

May 15, 2023

Maxillary Frenectomy using the Waterlase dental laser. This advanced technology allows for precise and minimally invasive procedures, resulting in faster healing and improved patient comfort.

Our first step in the Maxillary Frenectomy procedure is to distend the lip and identify the keratinized tissue that needs to be removed. By using the Waterlase laser, we can precisely ablate the targeted tissue without causing unnecessary trauma to the surrounding area.

Next, we carefully sweep the laser tip slowly from side to side to release the fibers within the tissue. This helps to ensure thorough and complete removal of the frenulum.

It is critical to defocus the laser point 1 to 3 millimeters or less from the target region for efficient hemostasis. As a result, there will be less bleeding both during and after the surgery as the laser energy can coagulate the blood vessels.

To achieve optimal cauterization, circular and slow movements are recommended while firing the laser. This technique helps ensure complete sealing of the blood vessels, reducing the risk of post-operative bleeding.

Repeat the cauterization process as needed to ensure proper hemostasis is achieved. The laser's precision allows for controlled and accurate tissue removal while minimizing trauma to the surrounding area.

Following the procedure, patients can expect uneventful healing. The Waterlase laser's minimally invasive approach reduces discomfort and promotes faster recovery times compared to traditional methods.
