Last week, a 15-year-old patient named Ion Plesca from Hincesti district visited the "Omni Dent" dental clinic for a consultation.
Upon the recommendation of a fellow dental colleague from the region, the patient ended up in the medical chair of the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dumitru Sirbu, with complaints of speech difficulties. Upon intraoral examination, a short lingual frenulum was observed. In this situation, frenuloplasty surgery is recommended to correct morphological defects and improve tongue functions.
"I speak with difficulty, cannot pronounce many sounds, my family members, as well as my classmates and teachers, do not understand me, and it has started to bother me," the patient said.
"Even as his mother, I often couldn't understand what he was saying, so we decided to undergo an examination," said the mother, Olesea.
The surgical intervention, performed by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dumitru Sirbu, assisted by his son, resident physician Daniel Sirbu, lasted approximately 20 minutes. "It was a simple, painless procedure that didn't take long but has lifelong effects," Ion, the patient, mentioned.
In the case of infants, this defect causes breastfeeding difficulties, while in older children, it can lead to malocclusion, speech defects, and swallowing problems.
