What is a Frenetomy?
A frenectomy is a surgery were excess frenal tissue is removed. The frenum is a small muscular fold that attaches two tissues and limits muscle movement and prevents tissue damage.
The two types of frenums in the mouth are the lingual and labial. The lingual frenum connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth while the labial frenum connects the lips to the gums above or below the teeth.
