DS had his first visit to the dentist today. I was told he should have a frenulumectomy. DS does have a noticeable gap between his two top teeth. The dentist said that if we do not have it done, it could cause problems later on with a larger gap and possible braces. Does anyone have any experience with this type of situation?? Is it necessary? Can we wait till his baby teeth fall out? Is the best time, if at all, now so the adult teeth won't gap? What's the likelihood that IF we decide to do this that it will prevent a gap?? Sorry for so many questions...but it was hard to find answers when I Googled. Thanks so much!
