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.
