Q: How soon post frenectomy can we begin therapy?
A: This depends on several factors. There are different protocols for infants, for example, than for older children and adults. Some doctors and dentists that release frena on infants have particular directives for parents to follow post frenectomy. For children and adults, I try to see them within three days post release and I begin proficiency exam #1, which consists of basic lingual skills, at that time.
