Treatment of Aberrent Frenum: Case Series

Dr. Maya S. Indurkar | Dr. Manjiree S. Awad


Abstract: The frenum is a mucous membrane fold that attaches the lip and the cheek to the alveolar mucosa, the gingiva, and the underlying periosteum. A frenum that encroaches on the margin of the gingiva may interfere with plaque removal and cause tension. Frenectomy is the complete removal of the frenum that can be made by scalpels or with soft tissue lasers. This article describes 4 case reports of different frenectomy techniques used for management of aberrant frenum
