Frenectomy

Livingston & Clark NJ Periodontal Regenerative Surgery

Frenectomy is a procedure to remove a limited area of alveolar mucosa (loose gum) that is connected to the gum edge of a tooth or concentrated between two teeth. At times, the frenectomy is combined with gum grafting to increase the quantity of attached gingiva (immovable gum) or improve the esthetics of the gum tissue.

This procedure is used in treating this problem, as describe above, in both children and adults. In children a frenectomy may be performed before or during the course of orthodontics.
