What Is A Frenectomy?
A frenectomy - often referred to as a "release" - is a surgical dental procedure that involves the removal of restricted frenum to provide free movement of the effected area.
Goals for Frenectomy
Range of Motion
Releasing a frenum frees up the amount of movement in your mouth which can benefit breathing, speaking, and more.
With less tension on the frenum your mouth won't tire as easily and will allow for better chewing and therefore better digestion.
Whether a frenum is too large or too small it can prevent you from swallowing your food well.
