Another before and after picture of a frenectomy in conjunction with a connective tissue procedure
A frenectomy ( aka. frenulectomy or frenotomy ) is the removal of a frenulum, a small fold of tissue.
The labial frenulum often attaches to the center of the upper lip and between the upper two front teeth. It can also attach to the lower lip and between the lower two front teeth. This can cause a large gap and gum recession. A labial frenectomy removes the labial frenulum.
