A frenum (also called frenulum) is a tissue attachment that holds or connects an area such as the tongue, lip or cheek. Occasionally a frenum might be exceptionally tight, thick or short. Frenul pull can contribute to localized areas of gum recession. It can also play a role in creating gaps between teeth. 

There are times when an infant is born with a lip and/or tongue tie. The lip or tongue tissue becomes too tightly attached to the gums or floor of the mouth, limiting movement and function. When left untreated, it can affect an infant’s ability to breastfeed as well as cause problems with speech, tooth decay, upper airway issues, and facial growth concerns in toddlers. 

A frenectomy is a simple surgery to excise the frenum. It usually takes less than fifteen minutes to perform this procedure, and postoperative discomfort is minimal. Dr. Carolina is specially trained in this procedure and will take the time to ensure your child’s comfort at all times.
