  • Frenum attached too high can lead to gap between front teeth and can lead to recession of the gums. Frenectomy procedure is done right before or right after braces come off.  If frenectomy treatment is not done, then failure of orthodontic treatment can take place. Frenectomy can be done with surgical procedure with scalpel or can be done with lasers. Frenectomy with lasers is less invasive and less painful as compared to scalpel frenectomy. After evaluation, your dentist will advice you whether to go for scalpel or lasers.    For more info on frenectomy procedure, refer to…..    http://www.identalhub.com/article_what-is-frenum-or-frenectomy-83.aspx
