What is a Frenectomy?

A frenum, or frenulum, is a small piece of tissue that attaches either the upper lip to the gum tissue or the tongue to the floor of the mouth. For some children, the frenum may be attached too tightly, causing a "tongue-tie," pulling of the gums, impaired speech, problems with eating or drinking, and more.

This allows for greater movement of the lips, and restored function of the tongue. This simple procedure can be performed right here in our office, and produces instant results.
