Learn About Frenectomy

A frenectomy, also called frenulectomy, is a simple surgical procedure in which we remove the labial (upper lip) or lingual (tongue) frenulum, a muscular connective tissue that prevents an organ from moving too far.

Why is a frenectomy necessary?

Dentist Northwest Dallas TX

The purpose of a tissue removal frenectomy is to correct unwanted tissues that are causing a dysfunctional frenum. Typically, a frenectomy suggests a small reduction of a frenum that is too short or tight. A lingual frenectomy would remove tissue from under the tongue, which is a simple procedure.

At Forest Lane Dental, we can perform a frenectomy quickly, safely, and with minimal pain and healing time, for young children and adults alike!
