A frenectomy (also known as a frenulectomy or frenotomy) is the removal of a frenulum, in this case, the thick tissue between the front teeth. The removal of the frenulum allows for teeth to be moved together with orthodontics, as well as aiding in healthier tissue growth next to front teeth without tension.
Whether or not you will ever need a frenectomy is genetically based. Predisposition to this condition is merely a matter of your family history, and is not disease related!
