Posted on 2/10/2019 by Clay Keith dds
A frenectomy is a very scaring sounding word, however, it is just a technical term used in oral surgery to describe a very common dental procedure. A frenectomy could vastly improve your overall oral health and hygiene. However, before you go about undertaking one, it would help to exactly understand just what a frenectomy is and why sometimes it is important to have one. What Is A Frenectomy?

Lift your upper lip and lower lip and inspect the fleshy inside that meets the gums of the frontal jaw. You will easily see the upper and lower jaw frenums that are tethered to the inside of the lips. A third frenum is located in your mouth connecting the underside of your tongue to the floor of your mouth. A frenectomy is a dental procedure where the frenum is removed. Removal of the lip tethering frenums are known as a labial frenectomy. The removal of the tongue tethering frenum is known as a lingual frenectomy.
