Frenulectomy

The term frenulectomy refers to the surgical re-positioning or removal of the frenulum. Frenulectomy operations are carried out to increase tooth stability after reducing the interdental cleft (i.e. an excessive interdental gap not determined by the loss or extraction of a tooth) in the case of a "labial-tectum” frenulum or to decrease the pull downwards involving the tongue owing to a short tongue frenulum.
Frenulectomy may also be recommended if the frenulum has a broad insertion or is mainly made of muscle tissue: the operation in performed with a local anaesthesia and a small suture is necessary.
