Frenectomy

The lingual frenum is the muscular attachment which connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Sometimes, this attachment can run all the way to the tip of the tongue, causing a person to be “tongue-tied.”

This condition is a common occurrence in young children. At Wisdom, we can perform a procedure called a frenectomy which can give your child normal tongue function, enabling them to eat and speak normally.

A lingual frenectomy is a simple procedure and involves numbing the tongue with an anesthetic. We then make a small incision which will free the tongue from the floor of the mouth. The incision then will be sewn up to allow the tissue to heal.
