Frenectomies are procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons in which the frenulum (tissue either from the spot above your two front teeth or the floor of your mouth) is removed. Sometimes the tissue above your two front teeth can cause a gap or recession of your gums and, therefore, necessitates removal. When the frenulum on the floor of your mouth is connected to a spot on your tongue that is too forward, it can cause issues with speaking, eating, and even breathing.
Frenectomies are more common in children that are struggling with proper oral function because of issues with a frenulum, but they can also be performed on older patients and are even elective procedures for some athletes.
