Abstract

Abnormal frenula may require treatment by frenulectomy. Several techniques are available, but using a laser for this purpose represents an innovative technology that may provide more efficient, more comfortable and more predictable treatment outcomes for both patient and surgeon. On this respect, Nd-YAP laser treatment is very useful allowing for excellent clinical outcomes with low morbidity. This case series reports on the use of Nd-YAP laser for a labial frenulectomy. Twenty-three patients were treated and afterward controlled. Laser treatment, above all Nd-YAP, appears to be the gold standard technique.
