Frenectomy is the surgical removal of the frenum. A frenum is a fold of tissue that passes from the lips, cheek and tongue into the gum as shown in the image below.
A surgical procedure is required to remove a frenum if it interferes with the normal alignment of teeth, movement of the tongue during speech or if it causes gum recession around the teeth. This is a simple procedure that is completed in one appointment. Contact Aria Periodontics & Implant Group today to book your appointment.
