Abstract
Frenectomy is the total removal of the frenum. Frenotomy is the repositioning of the frenum, to a more apical position. It can be performed by scalpel, electrocautery and laser techniques. Analgesics are considered as the most important drug groups in dental practice. This study was conducted with the aim to compare analgesics prescribed after frenectomy and frenotomy with scalpel and laser. We reviewed patient records and analysed the data of 105 patients between June 2019 to March 2020. The data of patients who underwent scalpel and laser frenectomy and frenotomy was reviewed and the data was tabulated. This university setting study involved 61 patients who had undergone scalpel and laser frenectomy and frenotomy. Data was tabulated with parameters of age, gender, treatment and analgesic prescribed. Data was then imported to SPSS for statistical analysis. Descriptive statistics and chi square test was done. The most commonly prescribed analgesic was Zerodol-P (aceclofenac+paracetamol) in scalpel and laser frenectomy and frenotomy. Scalpel frenectomy was the most commonly performed procedure. However, there was no significant association between the prescribed analgesics and the type of treatment. (p>0.05). Zerodol-P was the most commonly prescribed analgesic. The most commonly adapted technique was the scalpel frenectomy with a higher predilection in females. However, there is a need for extensive research to establish these facts.

Key words: Analgesic, Frenectomy, Frenotomy, Laser, Scalpel.
