What is a frenectomy?

Buccal braces must be of an adequate size for their function.In the mouth we have 3 braces: two labial (upper and lower) and a lingual frenulum.


They must have an adequate length to guarantee their functions, that is, the lip braces must allow good vocalization and a good lip seal to swallow without problems. The lingual frenulum gives mobility to the tongue.


If the braces are short or very thick, they do not perform their function well. With frenectomies we manage to increase its length. There are different techniques. The maxillofacial surgeon will indicate the most appropriate in your case.


It is an outpatient surgery indicated in children most of the time and is performed under local anesthesia.
