Frenectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of a small piece of tissue called the frenum, which connects the lips, tongue, or cheek to the gums. In children, this procedure is often recommended when the frenum restricts normal oral function, leading to issues such as tongue tie or lip tie. Frenectomy can help improve speech, breastfeeding, and overall oral health.

Benefits of Frenectomy:

  • Improved speech development
  • Enhanced breastfeeding experience for infants and mothers
  • Prevention of dental issues and gum recession
  • Greater comfort and range of motion for the tongue and lips
