At The Gentle Dentist located in Shelby Twp., Michigan we treat children and are aware when children have excessive tissue in between their front teeth.  This can prevent the teeth from coming together during eruption forming front teeth spaces.  The excessive muscle attachment thickness should be removed to allow for normal eruption and to prevent the teeth from separating.  This is called a labial frenum attachment.  The laser is used to gently eliminate this excessive tissue without any pain.

Your orthodontist may recommend that this be removed so that the central incisors (front teeth) can come together and look better.  If you have any quesions about this or phone number in Shelby Twp, Michigan is (586)247-3500.
