Objectives: This case report aims to performing and comparing the procedure of frenectomy using blade and LASER (Nd-YAG). Cases: First case, boy 14 years, with abnormalities of labial frenulum that extended to the palate. The second case, a woman 19 years old comes with a severe malocclusion and recession on her lower incisor due to tension of the frenulum. Case Management: Conventional frenectomy with blade for the first case, whereas in the second case we do frenectomy with LASER (NdYAG). Conclusion: Both of two techniques show each strength, same patient safety, similar outcomes and also patient comfort. Further studies should be recommended by adding greater amount of sample.
