Phrenectomy is the surgical procedure that aims to remove the labial, lingual and bridle curbs, allowing both orthodontic movement to close diastemas, as well as the proper movement of the tongue, necessary for functional activities. There are two techniques for frenectomy. One is the conventional technique with scalpels and periodontal knives, and the other using soft tissue laser. The aim of the study was to conduct a literature review of labial and lingual frenectomies using the laser. The methodology adopted was a literature review, with research of the articles being carried out in the Scielo and LILACS databases, with the descriptors "frenectomy", "frenulotomy" and laser as well as their respective ones in English. From this review, it is possible to observe that laser technology has been considered an alternative to conventional techniques, presenting several advantages such as: shorter operative work time, cauterization and sterilization of tissues, hemostasis, less need for local anesthesia and fewer post-operative complications (pain, edema and infection).
