ABSTRACT:
Frenectomy is one of the most common oral surgical procedures performed in dentistry. The labial frenectomy is performed to remove aberrant frenum attachment. Aberrant frenal attachment is a major concern for the patient as it can interfere with aesthetics, plaque control and result in mucogingival abnormalities. Frenotomy or frenectomy should be selected depending upon the type and location of frenum attachment. Diode laser has found to be successful in performing surgical procedures and it is cost effective. This case report presents the management of a mandibular high labial frenum attachment in a child patient using 980 nm diode laser.
