If you're experiencing any discomfort from your frenum, it's time for surgery. A procedure called a "frenectomy" removes or alters these abnormal folds in oral tissue which can cause orthodontic problems like misalignment of teeth and speech issues due to restrictions on tongue movement when spoken too rapidly (this is usually seen more often than not). The frenum is a natural fold in the oral cavity, but it can become too short or thick and interfere with proper alignment. If you have any of these conditions your teeth may also be restricted from moving properly due to its tightness which could cause problems when speaking clearly as well! There are two types: labial ( located on top lip ), and lingual( underneath tongue ).
The labial frenum is a specialized attachment point on the upper lip between your two front teeth. If it's interfering with proper alignment or pushing apart, then you may need to remove excess space before starting orthodontic treatment by removing this tissue--a procedure called "frenectomy." This could also be recommended for those who wear dentures as their prominent and enlarged nature can cause discomfort when fitting properly into our mouths.
Some people are born with a short or tight frenulum that can restrict the normal motion of their tongue. This may result in speech problems, difficulty eating and drinking thoroughly enough to avoid spills as well as hygiene issues for them throughout life if left untreated; ankyloglossia also leads often times into bite deformities not being able use your mouth fully because there's been such drastic change on one side only! After undergoing lingual frenulectomy patients will likely experience relief unlike any other procedure before it - after all- they'll be able move their tongues around much better than ever thought possible without worrying about pain whatsoever when you're finally done healing up from surgery too.
When the frenum is causing pain, interruption of normal function or disrupting orthodontic mechanics it may be excised. A typical procedure involves making an incision along one side of your child's face and then removing some tissue from within this cut with either scalpel or laser surgery depending on which option you choose during treatment. A frenectomy can also take place while patients are under local anesthesia meaning they will not feel anything but mild discomfort during their operation as well being able to eat/swallowing once awake post-op.
