MOORSETOWN, N.J., May 8, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Mario Canal and Ben Calem now welcome
The frenulum is a thin strip of muscular tissue between the gums and the upper lip, and the tongue and floor of the mouth. Connected between the two front teeth or under the tongue, the frenulum prevents the lip and tongue from moving too far. This piece of tissue, however, can sometimes be too restrictive, because it is too short, too tight, or incorrectly positioned. This can cause speech difficulty, trouble breastfeeding or eating, gum recession above the front teeth, inability to properly close the mouth, and a gap between the two front teeth.
A frenectomy procedure involves either clipping or removing the frenulum tissue to allow for full range of motion. This simple treatment is quick and minimally invasive, generally performed under local anesthesia. Many patients have minimal post-treatment pain or swelling at the procedure site and can go back to normal daily activities within a few days. Drs. Canal and Calem may recommend swishing a prescription rinse to help accelerate healing and remove any bacteria while the area is recovering. A frenectomy can eliminate pain and discomfort, ensure proper breathing and jaw development, and help orthodontic treatment be more predictable.
