Pediatric Dentistry

Keep Your Child’s Smile Healthy!

pediatric_dentistry_stuart_flThe American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children first see the dentist at one year old or when the first tooth emerges. It’s important to see a dentist early in a child’s life because it allows the doctor to examine his/her mouth and discuss specific oral hygiene instructions for the child.

Frenectomy in Stuart, FL

Frenectomy Before and AfterA frenum is a naturally occurring muscle attachment that usually is seen between the front teeth (either upper or lower) but can also occur under the tongue and in the cheeks. While normal, a frenum should never pull on the gum line or resulting gum recession may occur. Abnormal frenum’s have also been linked to increased periodontal disease. If pulling is seen, Dr. Parker may recommend a frenectomy.

A frenectomy is performed by surgically releasing the gum from the frenum. Occasionally, a new band of hard gum tissue is also added to re-establish an adequate amount of attached gum tissue. Frenectomies are usually performed under a local anesthetic.

Removing an abnormal frenum can help increase the stability of the teeth and gums, helping to improve not only the appearance of your smile but also the success of any orthodontic treatment.
