A frenectomy is a surgical procedure that removes or loosens a band of muscle tissue (frenum) that is connected to the lip, cheek or floor of the mouth. It is performed under local anesthetic with uneventful healing.

What is a frenectomy used for?

There are people with large frenums beneath their tongues. This prevents their tongue from moving freely, and this will interfere with their speech. The condition of limited tongue mobility is referred to as ankyloglossia or “tongue tie”.

There are times where the frenum is attached between the two upper front teeth. This condition is usually seen in children after their permanent upper front teeth have erupted in their mouths.

Dear our Periodontal Associates Patients,

We are writing you to inform you of our operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 15th, 2020 our provincial regulator, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, provided that all dentists and dental specialists were to suspend routine services due to the ongoing crisis.

The health and safety of our patients and our team is our top priority. This extends to the broader community and our duty to limit in-person contact to flatten the curve. Effective immediately, with the EXCEPTION OF EMERGENCY CARE, our office will be closed until further notice.

For patients who have received recent procedures, the after hours emergency service will remain available to you should you need to reach us.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and keep you informed. We are available remotely and can be reached at 905.279.3364. Your messages will be answered. Thank you for your understanding and support.

The Periodontal Associates Team
