The aberrant labial frenulum is one of the etiological factors for midline diastema. Such frenulum needs timely detection and early intervention in transition dentition to intercept the developing midline diastema in growing children. A conservative and minimal-invasive approach should be considered for managing the abnormal frenulum in the pediatric age group. This article presents a clinical case report on the successful and effective treatment of aberrant maxillary labial frenulum in a 10-year-old pediatric patient using the diode laser of 808 nm wavelength without infiltrative local anesthesia and sutures. The follow-up evaluation demonstrated optimum healing without any complications. The patient demonstrated cooperation and satisfaction with the laser surgery and its excellent healing outcomes.
