A frenectomy is a procedure to remove excess tissue connecting the lips to the jaw and gum – this tissue is called a frenum. Excess tissue can affect speech, or lead to teeth growing in incorrectly.

The removal of the tissue is carefully performed so that the child (or adult) can speak clearly, or be free from the excess tissue between the teeth affecting appearance.
