Everybody has a piece of skin that holds the lips in place to the inner gums, and the tongue in place to the lower pallet. If you were to extend your tongue out now, you should be able to do so without obstruction. This skin is known as Frenum. Some people however, have extended frenums preventing them from speaking, smiling and obtaining certain types of dental treatments such as orthodontics.
Some adults can live without ever knowing they have a problem as the skin is not long enough to cause obvious obstruction. Removal of the frenum is a common surgical procedure conducted by oral surgeons in Dubai. The frenum is a thin skin found in two places, in the centre forward of the upper jaw, between the inner lip and the gums, and underneath the tongue. The lingual frenum does at times obstruct normal speech.
A misplaced or an over grown frenum can lead to large teeth gaps, restrict tongue movement leading to problems with speech, eating, and even enjoying an ice cream can be difficult. This is when a frenectomy is required. The removal of this additional skin will free your tongue and also allow your Dubai orthodontist the freedom to realign your teeth using normal braces without causing you pain.
Oral Surgery for Frenum Removal is a very simple procedure and takes no longer than a few minutes. The oral surgery begins with the administration of anesthesia and a laser is used to remove the excess skin. The incision is very minor and the area heals within a day or two.
