Frenectomies in Tampa by Dr. Brian T. van Aelst 

A frenulum is a piece of connective tissue that holds an organ or a muscle in place. Each lip and the tongue have a frenulum of their own that keeps them stable. However, these folds can grow to be too short and thick, restricting lip and tongue movement. This condition makes it hard to eat as a baby and affects speech development in growing children.

Frenectomy can resolve these issues. Using a dental laser, Dr. van Aelst trims the thickened frenulum down to a more flexible size. Most times, the child who undergoes a frenectomy can eat or speak more easily.
