Glossary of Terms

Frenectomy is the release of a tie.

Functional Frenuloplasty is the release of a tie, therapist-supported release of sub-mucosal restrictions, and suturing of the diamond-shaped surgical site vertically which negates the need for active management of the surgical site. Oromyofunctional therapy helps to optimise functional outcome

All surgery at the National Tongue Tie Centre is performed with a CO2 Laser, the optimal tool for soft tissue surgery.
