Frenectomy and Fiberotomy
Richland, WA


Occasionally, abnormalities in our Richland, WA patient's connective tissue can interfere with oral health or the success of orthodontia and other procedures. Frenectomy and fiberotomy are two ways we can surgically correct for these problems.

Frenectomy


This is the surgical removal of the lingual or labial frenums, which are pieces of tissue that extend from the lips, cheek, and tongue to the gums (if you place your tongue in the space between your upper lip and upper front teeth, you can probably feel one of your frenums).

In certain cases, a frenum can prevent teeth from staying in place after they have been orthodontically moved together. In the lower front teeth, the frenum can pull the gum away from the teeth and cause gum recession, or the loosening of dentures. In a frenectomy, we snip the troublesome tissue, then stitch it up with dissolvable sutures.

Fiberotomy


This surgery detaches certain rubber band-like fibers, which are very similar to muscle tendons that hold teeth into position. Orthodontic patients often need this procedure to prevent fibers from pulling teeth back to their original position. The procedure is also very simple and painless, and no stitches are required.
