Lips are attached to the jaw with special folds, called frenulum. If the frenulum of the upper lip is characterized by low attachment, it may significantly disturb speech and chewing function. But the most serious problem is the formation of a diastema - a significant gap between the front upper teeth, which are separated by frenulum. Short frenulum has negative consequences for the periodontal tissues. In such cases it is important to operate tongue frenulum and Oral Surgeons in Kentucky are always ready to help. Operation is performed under local anesthesia, takes about 15-20 minutes. In place of frenulum remain sutures, which will eventually resolve.
