What are the benefits of Frenectomy? Frenectomy is a simple oral surgical procedure that eliminates the presence of a frenum in the mouth. A frenum is a muscular attachment between two tissues found inside of the cheeks and lips and inside the mouth and gums. There are two kinds of frenum in the mouth, the labial frenum and the lingual frenum. A labial frenum is a muscular tissue that connects the inside of the upper lip to the center of the gums between the two upper front teeth. The presence of this frenum creates a large gap between the two upper front teeth and can also cause recession of the gums by drawing the gums off the jaw bone.

Usually, dentists will advise their patients to wait for the growth of their two permanent upper front teeth before considering the treatment for labial frenum. It is because there are cases where the gap between the upper front teeth is eliminated during the growth of permanent teeth. However, if this is not possible, braces are used to correct the gap. Labial frenectomy is only performed if the braces are unable to correct the large gaps caused by labial frenum. In some cases where the presence of labial frenum can cause pain to the upper lip and gums in younger children, labial frenectomy is performed.

The second kind of frenum is called lingual frenum. It is a muscular tissue that connects the bottom center of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Lingual frenum that extends all the way to the tip of the tongue can sometimes restrict the patient from eating and speaking properly.

Lingual frenectomy is only performed if the presence of frenum prevents the child from eating and speaking properly. Patients who have undergone frenectomy have experienced better quality of life. Labial frenectomy: It reduces oral discomfort.

It improves facial appearance through the elimination of tooth gap between the two upper front teeth. It promotes self-confidence. It stabilizes dentures among denture users. Lingual frenectomy: It enhances communication and expression of oneself. It improves appetite because patient can eat properly. If you have any further questions regarding frenectomy, it is best for you to talk to your dentist.

Reviews A Short Guide To Frenectomy Treatment A frenectomy is the surgical alteration of a frenum which is a fold of tissue which restricts movement. In the mouth this is generally a small portion of tissue related to the upper lip, the tongue, or the lower lip. Usually one end of the frenum is connected to a muscular part of the body, like the tongue or lip, and the other to a relatively static part such as the floor of the mouth in the case of the tongue, or to the gums in the case of the upper lip. Too much restriction of movement of the tongue, for example, is not necessarily a good thing since it can interfere with normal function and this is why a frenectomy may be required. Three Types There are three types, that vary on the location of the problem in the mouth: Sometimes the frenum associated with the upper lip, which is in the midline, tends to cause or exacerbate spacing between the upper two front teeth central incisors and this may be considered unpleasing to the eye.
