Frenectomy - Denville, NJ, Oral Surgery - Cheryl L. Moccio DMD
Certain oral surgical procedures are done to enhance orthodontic results. They are also performed to enhance tongue mobility, speech and prevent gum recession.
The exuberant muscle attachment from the lip to the gum or from the tongue to the gum is called a frenum.
A frenectomy severs this attachment to promote oral health. Dr. Moccio will discuss necessary information at a consultation.
