Assessment of Use of Periodontal Dressing After Scalpel Frenectomy And Frenotomy - A Retrospective Study

Jagadish Rajkumaar, Balaji Ganesh S, SS Raj.

The aberrant frenum attachment can be treated by frenectomy and frenotomy. There are various treatment options like using scalpel, electrosurgery and lasers. After these procedures a periodontal dressing is usually advised. It prevents or minimizes the post operative infections, hemorrhage and allows the healing process to proceed without any disturbance. The present study focuses on the preferences of the dental surgeon to place periodontal dressing after scalpel frenectomy and frenotomy procedure. The sample size was 71 patients. 73.2% were patients underwent frenectomy and 27% patients underwent frenotomy, in 73% of cases the dental surgeon preferred periodontal dressing (coe-pak) after frenotomy and in 82% of cases the dental surgeon preferred a periodontal dressing (coe-pak) frenectomy. The most number of female patients underwent frenectomy (43.66%) and frenotomy (16.90%) procedures when compared to male patients. p value=0.78 (﹥0.05), hence the association was found to be statistically not significant. Within the limits of our study, we conclude by saying that most of the dental surgeons prefer using periodontal dressing (coe-pak) after scalpel frenectomy and frenotomy procedure.

Key words: Frenectomy, Frenotomy, Infection control, Periodontal dressing.
