Frenectomy is removal of a small muscle tissue, frenulum, which connects other tissues in the body.
HOW IS FRENECTOMY DIAGNOSED?
The most common type of frenectomy is performed in dentistry which involves removal of the frenulum that connects the upper lip to the gums. In most cases, the frenulum blends into the gum tissues and lies much above the teeth but sometimes, it extends into the front teeth. This is when frenectomy becomes important.
HOW IS FRENECTOMY TREATED?
Frenectomy surgery serves varied purposes in dentistry to restore frenum condition for healthy oral function. Typical dentistry treatments requiring a frenectomy include:
• Tongue Clipping
Patients usually recover from frenectomy surgery within an approximate period of two weeks. This depends on the patient's health condition and healing rate.
