Frenectomy in
Waukegan

A frenulum is a piece of tissue that prevents an organ from moving. There is a frenulum that attaches your upper lip to the gums, while another connects the lower lip to the gums.

Frenectomy in Waukegan

A frenulum that is too short or thick will cause problems in speech patterns and tooth misalignment. In infants, a shortened frenulum underneath the tongue will inhibit breastfeeding. When the frenulum disrupts movement, growth or development, corrective action is necessary to resolve the situation.

A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that is performed in your dentist’s office.

It can be performed with either a scalpel or laser and takes less than 15 minutes. Using a laser causes very little bleeding and does not require stitches. The use of the laser also results in less postoperative discomfort and a shorter healing time. Young children and infants are put under general anesthesia for the procedure and adults have the procedure performed using local anesthesia. If your child needs a frenectomy, there is nothing to worry about. The procedure is very successful and causes minimal discomfort.

An incredible staff and dentist! My procedure was painless and it was so nice to have a doctor who is willing to not only explain what he is doing but also LISTEN to his patient! I will continue coming back to Dr. Saad and to his wonderful staff!

Dr. Saad is great at what he does! I had all four wisdom teeth extracted and he's very gentle and really cares about your pain. The receptionist is very friendly. I recommend this office BIG time.
