Frenectomy Procedure with Dental Laser

This Frenectomy Procedure video was filmed by a clinical using a diode dental laser at Keating Dental Arts Dental Lab in Irvine California. Performing a frenectomy on a patient can not only help improve their dental care, but also their quality of life. In this video, we’ll walk through using a diode laser to perform a frenectomy, as well as her postoperative care.


oh. my. god. I have to have a frenectomy and I am sooo scared 😭😭😭

Wow it’s 3 years later now haha! I had my frenectomy done before braces and it didn’t hurt much. I was relieved as it was over with in only 10 mins. It ached a bit afterward so I only ate soft food for a week and did salt water gurgling, and it healed perfectly! 🙂 X

It’s important to remember that it’s likely to grow back. Mine has partly grown back and if it wasn’t for my fixed retainer, my tooth gap would open. In the future I am going to let my gap reopen because it’s so much hassle to try and keep it closed. Besides, gaps are beautiful!

Your patient has very nice teeth. For one to have their natural secondary teeth for life is amazing and if they can keep them this nice for as long as possible, then that’ll bode well for them into their senior years of life. I appreciate the procedure also. Thank you doc.

I had this done last night and I was SOOOO scared cause it looks and sounds REALLY painful. But when I was in the actual procedure I felt ABSOLUTELY zero pain and I felt nothing at all. The only thing uncomfortable about that process was the disgusting burning flesh smell. And after the procedure the surgery area barley felt uncomfortable at all.

For anyone getting this done, you won’t feel a thing. I just had it done a few hours ago. They put the numbing injection which was the only thing that pinched and other than that nothing hurt. After a few hours post op it was really soar, but take Advil. Tbh the pain depends on the person because it’s different for everyone:)
