Frenectomy post op exercises?

Frenectomy post op exercises are a great way to speed up your healing process and avoid future problems.

There is no definitive answer to this question as different surgeons will have different recommendations for their patients. However, some general suggestions for post-operative exercises following a frenectomy procedure may include softly massaging the surgical site, performing exercises to promote range of motion in the affected area, and doing stress-reduction exercises to help minimize the risk of scar tissue formation. As always, it is best to consult with your surgeon prior to beginning any type of exercise program.

When can I exercise after frenectomy?

It is important to start your post-op exercises as soon as possible to help with your recovery. Stretches should be done 5 times per day for at least 6 weeks.

It is important to do the exercises with the baby in your lap or on a bed with their feet away from you. This will help to prevent injury and maximize the effectiveness of the stretches. It is also important to timing the stretches so that you do one stretch in the evening and the next in the morning.

What can you not do after frenectomy

It is important to avoid vigorous rinsing, sucking on the wound, spitting, using a straw, and exercising for 48 hours after a procedure that uses general anesthetic or IV sedation. This will help to prevent discomfort. Start with liquids after the procedure, and while numb, avoid hot liquids or foods.

As with all oral surgery, you may experience some discomfort as the anesthesia begins to wear off. Taking a couple of Tylenol or Advil should help to eliminate any discomfort. Sensitivity of the gums or teeth to cold or touch is common, but should go away within a day or two.

How often does frenectomy reattach?

A frenectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a frenum, which is a small fold of tissue that connects the lips or tongue to the gums. A laser frenectomy is a type of frenectomy that uses a laser to remove the frenum.

Laser frenectomies are said to be more effective than traditional frenectomy procedures in preventing reattachment of the tissue. The success rate of laser frenectomies is reported to be 96%, while the success rate of traditional frenectomies is only 92%.

It is important to understand that it may take some time to learn how to correctly and consistently suck after having a frenectomy. Improvements with feedings are usually gradual and can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks. In most cases, frenectomy alone will not cure all of the feeding problems and additional therapies may be needed.frenectomy post op exercises_1

How many times a day should you stretch your tongue-tie?

The tongue and lips are two of the most mobile structures in the human body, and their movements are coordinated with the help of the muscles in the mouth. It is very important to keep these muscles flexible and mobile, especially in children, so that they can develop proper speech and eating habits. Therefore, we recommend that babies stretch their tongues and lips four times a day, toddlers stretch two times a day (at a minimum), and school-age children and adults stretch three times a day. These stretches involve physically lifting the tongue or lip to make sure it’s not sticking back together (reattachment/readhesion).

It is important to follow the post-operative instructions given to you by your doctor or surgeon. These instructions are in place to help ensure that your surgical site heals properly. For the first 48 hours after surgery, it is important to avoid activities that could cause particles to become airborne, such as spitting, sucking through a straw, or smoking. Instead, focus on gently brushing your teeth and rinsing your mouth with a salt water solution. Rinse 3-4 times a day, after you eat and before you go to bed at night. Continue this routine for several weeks, or until the surgical area has healed completely.

How do you massage after a frenectomy

The massage is done by touching the tips of your index fingers together, and pushing firmly on the diamond area You then lift the tongue by pushing your fingers up toward the roof of the mouth.

It’s important to keep your emails together so that you stretch the area (don’t let them slip to the sides).

It is important to maintain normal oral hygiene measures in the areas of your mouth not affected by the surgery. This will help to prevent infection. In areas where there is a dressing, lightly brush only the biting surfaces of the teeth. Please chew on the opposite side of your mouth and try to avoid the dressing as much as possible.

Can you smile after a frenectomy?

If you have a tight frenum, it can be difficult to clean your teeth properly. This can cause oral problems, including speech and eating difficulties, gaps between the front teeth, and speech difficulty. However, if you get a frenectomy (a procedure to remove the frenum), it will improve your smile by giving you more free movement of your lips.


A frenectomy is a minor in-office oral surgical laser procedure which involves removing either the connective tissue located under the tongue (lingual frenum) or the band of tissue that attaches the upper lip to the gums (labial frenum) in order to correct problems arising from a tongue tie or lip tie condition.

This simple and quick procedure can have a profound effect on a person’s life, improving their ability to eat, speak, and breathe. Contact us today to learn more about how a frenectomy can help you or your child.

What does a healing frenectomy look like

What to expect after a wound heals

After a wound heals, you can expect the wound to appear as a small diamond shape with a dark yellowish coloring. The wound should form a film within a few days, similar to the appearance of a wet scab. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to talk to your doctor or another medical professional.

Healing can occur anytime from a few days to a few weeks after the injury. The wound will be “diamond-shaped” and will look like a hole in the beginning. This will change in a few days to a white/yellow colour. The wound can appear infected but this is the normal healing process.

What should tongue look like after frenectomy?

The healing process will begin almost immediately after the treatment is given. The wound will be larger than usual, but this is normal. The wound may be whitish yellow or even neon yellowish green, but this is also normal. The pus-like appearance is also normal and should not be cause for concern.

Sutures are placed to help facilitate closure of the gums, reduce bleeding and swelling, and prevent food from seeping into the surgery site. Most stitches are dissolvable and supposed to unravel or fall out on their own (typically around 5 days after surgery).frenectomy post op exercises_2

How do you get a deep latch after frenectomy

To promote tongue movement and strength, gently rub your baby’s lower gum line from side to side with a clean index finger. Let your baby suck on your finger or a pacifier while you gently pull it back.

Frenectomy is the removal of the frenulum, a small strip of tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Frenectomy is a surgical procedure that can be done with either a scalpel or a laser.

Frenuloplasty is a surgical procedure to release the frenulum. This procedure can be done with either a scalpel or a laser.

The difference in tongue length is generally a few millimeters and it may actually shorten the tongue, depending on the procedure and aftercare.

How quickly can a tongue-tie reattach

If the wound heals by secondary intention healing, it will heal gradually from the back edge of the diamond and the top and bottom halves will become attached together again. This type of healing typically takes from 1-2 weeks.

Although tongue-tie surgery is relatively simple and can be performed on infants, some doctors recommend waiting until the child is older. This is because the lingual frenulum (the tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth) tends to loosen over time, and the child may be able to correct the problem on their own. Approximately 35 to 5 percent of all people are born with tongue-tie.

Does it hurt to release a tongue-tie

As mentioned, tongue-tie division is a quick and simple procedure that can have an immediate impact on a person’s ability to feed properly. Because it is minimally invasive and involves little pain, tongue-tie division is often the preferred course of treatment for those affected by this condition.

It is important not to rinse your mouth or brush your teeth the day of surgery as this can cause bleeding. The day after surgery, you can rinse with a solution of warm salt water every 6 hours to help with healing. You can start brushing your teeth again using care around the area of extraction, but if it is painful you may want to wait 1 or 2 more days.


After a frenectomy, it is important to do some exercises to help the area heal and to prevent scar tissue from forming. Here are some exercises that you can do:

1. Hold a gauze pad or cotton ball against the frenectomy site and apply pressure for 5 minutes. This helps to stop any bleeding and can also help reduce swelling.

2. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water several times a day. This helps to keep the area clean and can also reduce swelling.

3. Apply ice to the frenectomy site for 15 minutes at a time. This can help reduce any swelling or bruising.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 for at least the first week after your frenectomy.

After the first week, you can start doing some gentle stretching exercises. These exercises will help to prevent scar tissue from forming and will also help keep the area flexible.

1. Use your fingers to gently pull the skin around the frenectomy site in all directions.

2. Use a clean Q-tip to massage the frenectomy site in a circular motion.

3. Repeat steps 1-2 several times a day.

4. After the first week, you can start using a

In conclusion, performing post-operative exercises after a frenectomy can help improve the healing process and reduce the risk of complications. Patients should consult with their surgeon prior to starting any exercises, and follow all instructions
