Have you ever noticed the small connections in the mouth where the tongue, lips and cheeks are fixed to the palate? These tiny tissues, which have a different structure in each person, can sometimes cause serious problems such as speech impairment. In our clinics, the anomaly can be removed with very short and painless operations.
The surgical removal of the oral ligaments of frenulum is called Frenectomy. Soft ligaments that connect the lip, tongue and cheek tissues to the palate are called frenulum. They are located between the upper and lower middle incisors on the gingiva, between the cheek and the posterior teeth, and between the tongue and the lower palate. Frenulum is of different size and build in every person. In some people, the structure of the tongue tie can restrict tongue movement and cause speech impairment or different gum problems.
