Dental Partners of Vero Beach provides adult frenectomy in Vero Beach, FL. Call 772-569-4118 to learn more and schedule an appointment.

At Dental Partners of Vero Beach, we provide labial and lingual frenectomies, also known as a lip or tongue tie release, for patients of all ages. A frenectomy releases a small fold of tissue that prevents part of the body from moving fully.  Did you know that a simple frenectomy procedure could improve a person’s sleep and overall health? Often after this procedure, patients will notice a deeper quality of sleep with less snoring, less movement, and less waking, all resulting in much better daytime moods due to greater nighttime sleep.

We perform these procedures using our LightScapel CO2 Laser, which offers patients a more comfortable experience with faster healing and fewer trips to our office. Do not let oral restrictions impact your quality of life - contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Labial Frenectomy

A labial frenectomy, also known as a lip-tie release, is performed on the tissue that connects the lip to the gums. This may be performed to aid with a number of concerns including but not limited to orthodontic treatment or even help with the proper fitting for a denture or appliance. See additional potential indications below.

Lingual Frenectomy

A lingual frenectomy, also referred to as the release of tongue-ties (ankyloglossia), is performed on the connective tissue under the tongue. The procedure is often performed on both older patients, infants, and children who need treatment to help correct issues caused by limited movement due to the frenum.
