Frenectomy

Performed under local anesthesia by the dentist, a frenectomy is a minor procedure that consists of cutting the labial or lingual frenum (attachment) of the mouth.

A useful intervention for oral functions

The dentist performs a frenectomy when the position of the labial or lingual frenum causes speech problems, receding gums, dental malposition, etc.

  • Labial frenum: small attachment that connects the lip (upper and lower) to the jawbone
  • Lingual frenum : attachment that connects the tongue to the jawbone

Post-operative pain associated with a frenectomy is minimal and the patient can resume normal activities almost immediately.
