What is a Frenectomy?

A frenectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing or cutting a frenulum. A frenulum is a small fold of tissue that connects the lips, cheeks, or tongue to the gums or palate. Frenectomies are performed for a variety of reasons, including to improve speech, eating, and dental hygiene, but are most commonly used in the treatment of infants and children. In some cases, a frenectomy may also be necessary to prevent gum disease or other oral health problems. Recovery time is typically short, and most people experience little to no discomfort after the procedure. 

Frenectomies are a delicate and important surgery. They require precise cuts and a gentle hand to ensure that the frenulum is removed without damaging the surrounding tissue. For this reason, it’s essential to choose an experienced and skilled surgeon for the procedure. All Dental has a team of highly trained surgeons who have performed many frenectomies.
