Abstract:

An aberrant frenum gives rise to aesthetic and functional problems and needs to be eliminated. Various procedures were introduced to eliminate the aberrant frenum which led to delayed healing, loss of interdental papilla and unesthetic scar. This led to more conservative approaches with their technical and esthetic limitations.

An alternative approach for primary closure in midline and to avoid unesthetic scar by creating a zone of attached gingival is frenectomy with laterally displaced flap. The interdental papilla is left surgically undisturbed and healing takes place by primary intention. A case report of frenectomy with laterally displaced flap is presented.

Keywords: aberrant frenum, frenectomy, laterally displaced flap
