Tied Tongue Repair

You can also have problems with your labial frenum, which is the frenulum that joins your upper lip to the gums/jaw. If this is too tight, it can induce gum recession and expanded spacing between the teeth, which can cause pain and other continuous dental problems.

If you or your child has a tied tongue or receding gums, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team can perform a frenectomy. This procedure is ideal for the restoration of your ability to bite, chew, and speak properly, while also preventing future dental complications. If you're in the East Bay or San Francisco areas, reach out and set up your consultation to learn more.

What is a frenectomy?

The goal of a frenectomy is to take out or modify a frenulum to enhance your oral health. During a lingual frenum repair, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team remove excess tissue from the lingual frenum so your tongue can move more freely.

Reasons for frenectomy

A tied tongue can restrain your tongue and make it very difficult to move it, causing pain and discomfort, speech difficulties, receding gums, tongue thrust, and bite misalignment. Dr. Samadian and his team will complete a thorough exam of the whole mouth to provide an advanced diagnosis of exactly what’s happening and establish a plan for treatment. If you or your child has a tied tongue, Dr. Amin Samadian and his highly trained staff may recommend a lingual frenectomy to resolve these issues.

What does a frenectomy involve?

Fortunately, a frenectomy is a straightforward treatment that can be completed in just one office visit. First, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team will inspect your or your child’s mouth to determine how severe the problem is. Then, he’ll use scissors or a laser to separate a small section of the restrictive frenum.

Is a frenectomy painful?

Since Dr. Amin Samadian and his team will anesthetize the area around the frenum and the tongue before your treatment, you should not experience any pain or discomfort.

What results will I see?

After tied tongue repair, you or your child will experience a freely moving tongue and be able to properly bite, eat, and speak with no issues.
