    Dental Frenectomy: Meaning & Types

    Frenectomy is a dental surgery that deals with tongue-tie and lip-tie problems and involves cutting the frenulum (also called frenum) – a tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth or lips to the gums. Considering the presence of several frenums in the oral cavity, we can distinguish two main types of frenectomy:

    Lingual frenectomy

    When performing a lingual frenectomy, a surgeon cuts the connective tissue between your tongue and the floor of your mouth. It’s a great solution to treat issues caused by a defective tongue-tie, especially since the procedure pricing is reasonable.


    Labial frenectomy

    This type of frenectomy dental surgery involves the removal of the connective tissue between your upper lip and gums. The procedure can be performed with the lower lip as well. The prices for cutting upper and lower lip-ties are often the same, while the first option is still more common.

    Who Needs Oral Surgery Frenectomy?

    In most cases, a dentista performs frenectomy on children who have feeding or speech-related issues. The price of frenulum cutting procedure is traditionally inexpensive, and it’s often done shortly after birth. However, adults may also need such treatment, for example, when a frenum is too tight and causes gum recession. In this case, the cost of frenectomy may be higher.

    If it is too large, the attachment between lips and gums or beneath the tongue, known as the frenum, can cause gapped teeth or tongue-tie. During the treatment, a frenectomy surgery specialist can clip this tissue to ease discomfort and even improve speech for children or adults. Sound helpful? That’s because it is.
