CO2 Laser Frenectomy of Adult with Anterior Tongue-Tie

This is a video of Richard Baxter, DMD, MS, releasing a tongue-tie of a 27 year-old man who had an undiagnosed tongue-tie almost to the tip of the tongue. The patient had a history of mumbling and chronic neck pain. Dr. Baxter preformed the frenectomy with his LightScalpel CO2 laser at the following setting: SuperPulse at 2 Watts – 29 Hz 1450 mW.

Compared to conventional frenectomy methods, the advantages of using a LightScalpel CO2 laser include minimal to no bleeding, most often no need for sutures, less discomfort for the patient, and faster procedure times.
