During my consultation with the oral surgeon he advised removing two lower jaw teeth and an embedded lower wisdom tooth. He also noticed that I had slight gum recession on one of my lower front teeth. He explained that the string of soft tissue (frenum) was pulling down on my gum. He said he would clip this for me at no charge.
The evening after my surgery I noticed that a lingual frenectomy (under tongue) had beed done instead of a labial frenectomy (inside lower lip). Q: Will a lingual frenectomy do anything to prevent further gum recession which is occurring only in the front side of my lower front tooth?
Also, what advice might you have for this situation? Thank you.
