Maxillary Laser Lip Frenectomy Video

This is an HD video showing Dr. Nick Calcaterra perform a laser frenectomy in our office in Orange. Specifically, this is a maxillary midline lip frenectomy – meaning that we removed the frenum that attached between the two top front teeth. Our patient was 17 years old at the time the procedure was performed.

A couple of notes about the video:

  1. We condensed the procedure into less than 5 minutes. In reality, it is a very quick and painless procedure. Not including the time it takes to get numb, most frenetomies last no more than five minutes.
  2. As expected, our patient experienced no pain during the procedure.
  3. In her post-operative interview, she mentioned how easy it was, only needing a Motrin/Tylenol for a couple of days.

Overall, most patients state that their frenectomy procedure was easier than getting a filling placed.
