A frenum is a connective tissue in the mouth, and a frenectomy is a simple and common procedure to remove or reduce the size of a frenum. One frenulum attaches the tongue to the bottom of the mouth and other ones attach the lips to the gums between the front teeth. When these tissues restrict speech, movement or swallowing, this simple procedure can solve the problem.
