Classical frenectomy: A case report

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Aanchal Tyagi, Dr. Mehvish Saleem, Dr. Mayur Kaushik and Dr. Nazar Rana
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. The frenum may hamper the gingival health if it is attached too closely to the gingival margin, which can be a result of interference in the plaque control or due to a muscle pull. The management of such an aberrant frenum is treated by performing a frenectomy. The present case report is on frenectomy using the conventional technique with 3 months of follow up.
