About

This study is based on the records of the patients treated for labial frenectomy with a dental laser at the Department of Padiatric Dentistry from January 2017 to December 2017. Patients younger than 15 years were included and in total 22 patients who matched the inclusion criteria were investigated in the study. The analyzed data included age, gender, frenelum insertion type, type of dental laser, and postoperative pain perception.

Full description

This study is based on the records of the patients who received laser-assisted frenectomy treatment due to mucogingival problems at pediatric dentistry department during two year period. Twenty-two patients treated with either Er,Cr:YSGG laser 2780 nm or 940 nm diode laser were selected who fulfilled the study's inclusion criteria. The analyzed data included age, gender, frenelum insertion type, type of dental laser, postoperative pain perception and wound healing. Post-operative pain was reported with Wong-Baker Faces Pain Rating Scale after 3 hours 1, 7 and 14 days. Wound surface healing was evaluated through photography. Images were uploaded to the software and the changes in the wound area were measured in square millimeters at the day of frenectomy and on days 1, 7, and 14 postoperatively.
