ABSTRACT:
The frenum is a mucous membrane fold that attaches the lip and the cheek to the alveolar mucosa, the gingiva and the underlying periosteum. An aberrant frenum may jeopardize the gingival health when they are attached too closely to the gingival margin, either due to an interference in the plaque control or due to a muscle pull. In addition to this, an aberrant maxillary labial frenum may result in diastema and recession resulting in compromised aesthetics. The management of such an aberrant frenum is accomplished by performing frenectomy. The “classical frenectomy” technique is an extensive procedure exposing the alveolar bone and thus leading to scar formation. To minimize these defects, Miller proposed a frenectomy technique combined with a laterally positioned pedicle graft. This article presents a case report of aberrant frenum which was corrected using frenectomy with laterally displaced flap technique.
