Orthodontic Procedures – Frenectomy

What is a Frenectomy?

This procedure involves the removal of tissues whose most common location is between the upper and lower front teeth, however, they can also occur in other areas. When found between the upper front teeth, they can prevent the two front teeth from coming together or cause orthodontic relapse with a resulting space. If located too close to the gum line of the lower front teeth, they can cause gum recession.
