Dr. Voller has been performing frenectomies for well over 30 years now, and he knows what kinds of symptoms patients and their parents can expect on the route to recovery from the procedure. Please take a look at our helpful tips below, and don’t hesitate to contact the practice if you have further questions or concerns.

Do Stretches Before Each Feeding

Do the recommended stretches for at least two weeks following treatment to minimize the possibility of reattachment.

For lip ties, pull the lip up and stretch it out.

For tongue ties, pull the tongue up and outward, stretching area out. Do NOT rub your fingers over the treatment site.

Use Tylenol or Motrin if Needed

Use the amount that is recommended by your pediatrician to help treat any discomfort. There should be very little discomfort following a frenectomy.

Wounds Will Turn White When Healing

This is a very normal occurrence, so don’t worry. After the procedure, there should also very little to no bleeding.
