Picture 1, 2 and 3: BEFORE surgery - tongue frenulum attached very high up on the gingiva causing gum recession as it is pulling the gum and makes it difficult to brush and keep clean. Pt has had no difficulty with speech.
Picture 4, 5 and 6: AFTER surgery - tongue frenulum now cut and stitched back further down - good healing 6 months after surgery -not interfering with the gum and much more comfortable for the patient. The tongue is more free to move.
