Finding the Best Frenectomy Tool
Finding the Best Frenectomy ToolFifteen laser frenectomy providers from USA, Canada, and Europe compare their experiences using the LightScalpel CO2 laser vs scissors, electrocautery, and other surgical laser systems such as diode, erbium, and other CO2 laser brands. During the interviews, watch video clips of LightScalpel CO2 laser frenectomy procedures including tongue-tie, lip-tie, and buccal-tie releases.
The CO2 laser wavelength advantageWhen compared to other laser wavelengths on the market, the CO2 laser is THE ONLY practical soft-tissue surgical laser that uses the laser beam directly to cut, ablate and photo-thermally coagulate the soft tissue. When compared to hot-tip cautery devices (diode/electrosurgery), the CO2 laser offers often much faster surgeries with less collateral damage to surrounding tissues. Learn more about laser-tissue interaction.
LightScalpel's CO2 laser delivery system advantageLightScalpel's exclusive flexible-fiber delivery system makes it the most ergonomic CO2 laser on the market and the ideal choice for frenectomy procedures. The flexible-fiber and unique 'pen-like' handpieces allow users to get up close to the target tissue (0.08 inches away, on average), whereas other CO2 lasers use articulated arm systems that have to be held, on average, 1 to 1.5 inches away. This distance becomes a vital safety concern when performing a frenectomy on non-cooperating patients such as infants and young children. Learn more about CO2 laser technology.
