Clinical Perspectives On Post-Operative Care For Tethered Oral Tissues (Tots), Robyn A. Merkel-Walsh, Lori L. Overland Jul 2024

Clinical Perspectives On Post-Operative Care For Tethered Oral Tissues (Tots), Robyn A. Merkel-Walsh, Lori L. Overland

International Journal of Orofacial Myology and Myofunctional Therapy

Introduction: Post-operative frenectomy care is often focused on active wound management (AWM) and followed by neuromuscular re-education (NMR). The standard practices of AWM are varied amongst providers. AWM is often expected to be performed by caregivers who have little to no experience with AWM. In contrast, NMR is individualized to patient needs and has been emerging in external evidence as a beneficial modality for the functional implications of tethered oral tissues (TOTs). It is guided by licensed professionals but is not often accessible or recommended.

New Perspective: AWM and NMR often are similar in execution but differ in goals. AWM …
