HIGH ABERRANT LABIAL FRENUM AND ITS DIFFERENT TREATMENT MODALITIES: A CASE SERIES

ABSTRACT The frenum is a mucous membrane fold that attaches the lip and cheek to the alveolar mucosa, gingiva, and underlying periosteum. It may jeopardize the gingival health when it is attached too closely to the gingival margin, either due to interference in plaque control or due to a muscle pull and may cause midline diastema resulting in aesthetic problems. The management of such an aberrant frenum is accomplished by …Read More
