Clinical Efficacy of Conventional and Diode Laser-Assisted Frenectomy in Patients With Abnormal Different Frenum Insertions: A Retrospective Study
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03965455|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : May 29, 2019
Last Update Posted : May 29, 2019
Aim: The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the frenum attachment recurrence and evaluate clinical parameters after conventional and diode laser-assisted frenectomy in patients with different abnormal frenum insertions.
Methods: Data records of 429 patients treated with maxillary labial frenectomy between January 1, 2016 and January 1, 2018 were screened. Records of 70 patients meeting the inclusion criteria were evaluated. Data were analyzed in terms of gender, age, category of frenum, presence of diastema, operation technique, type of periodontal disease. The distance between frenum attachment and mucogingival junction (FMGJ), plaque index (PI), gingival index (GI) and probing depth were assessed.

In the conventional frenectomy, the incisions were applied using a scalpel blade no.15 on the upper and lower surface of the haemostat until the frenum was excised.
Other Name: frenectomy
|diode laser group||
Device: Diode laser
In the laser-assisted frenectomy, a diode laser device (GIGA Cheese II®, China) (λ= 810 nm) with a 400 µm diameter, plain-ended optical ﬁber tip was used for the procedure maintaining contact with oral mucosa at 2,5 W, 70 Hz frequency with a short pulse (140 microseconds) duration.
Other Name: frenectomy
- recurrence [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]Recurrence is evaluated by the formation of an intact mucosa with the frenum attached to its new position
