Frenectomy – Dental Procedure for Children

Labial Frenum, Dental Procedures, Peterborough Periodontists, Kawarthas Periodontists, Dentists in Peterborough, Gum Disease, Gum SpecialistsThe Labial Frenum is the attachment of the upper lip to the gums of the upper jaw. In children, when the frenum is too short it can cause a gap between the two top front teeth and limit mouth closure which leads to mouth breathing, slowing down the development of nose breathing. A short labial frenum can also cause the gums to recede.

To fix this problem a dentist or periodontist may suggest a frenectomy which is a simple procedure of cutting the frenum allowing better movement of the upper lip.
