I had a lingual frenlectomy about a month ago since my lower gums began to recede. All this time has past and i still have pain. Is this normal?

  • Normally the wound heals after 7-10 days of frenectomy when the sutures are removed and if one month has passed and you still have pain then you should consult your dentist as sometimes secondary infection is there which causes the pain. Till then you can do warm saline rinses and try not to irritate that area as this will increase the problem.
