Frenectomy aftercare includes a series of exercises to perform at home. These exercises help patients achieve optimal results after the procedure by promoting healing and preventing the tissue from reattaching. We recommend you and your infant do these exercises six times a day for the first three weeks. Then the frequency will taper off in the fourth and final week. Don’t worry—you’re not expected to remember everything we tell you at the appointment. Your dentist will provide you with comprehensive aftercare instructions to take home, including what to watch out for and how to reach us if you suspect a problem.
