Correction of the Labial Frenulum

Correction of the Labial Frenulum

The labium frenulum is situated between the upper lip and the front incisors. If it inserts to deep, it can lead to a permanent tooth gap, which is not only considered aesthetically unpleasant, but which can also lead to an unclear pronunciation, especially of children.

The correction of the labium frenulum is carried out by a little surgical intervention. In case of children, this intervention should not be carried out until the side incisors have already broken through. The tooth gap should vanish within a period of about three months. A subsequent orthodontic regulation of the tooth gap is needed in most cases in adulthood, but only in individual cases for children.
