Frenectomy is a procedure that treats a lip-tie or tongue-tie. The condition is commonly detected by a pediatrician or general dentist during routine checkups. It is a simple yet important treatment that offers a wide range of benefits.

The procedure is commonly carried out for:

  • Speech correction in infants and children.
  • For orthodontic purposes as it can interfere with proper growth and spacing of the upper two front teeth which results in the development of a large gap between these two teeth.
  • They can complicate with denture fabrication and denture retention.

Challenges that may occur are
