A frenectomy (also known as a frenulectomy or frenotomy) is the removal of a frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving to the maximum potential. NoPo Kids Dentistry can offer a visual exam or consultation to determine if your child truly needs this procedure done. Done mostly for breastfeeding or orthodontic purposes, a frenectomy is either performed inside the middle of upper lip, which is called labial frenectomy, or under the tongue, called lingual frenectomy. Frenectomy is a very common dental procedure that is performed on infants, children, and adolescents.
