Aberrant frenal attachments pose a concern for the patient as it can interfere with aesthetics, plaque control and result in mucogingival deformities. This calls for the management of these anatomical structures by frenectomy or frenotomy depending upon its attachment and location. Labial and lingual frenectomies/frenotomies are routinely performed periodontal plastic procedures. In few cases, the presence of an aberrant buccal frenum of the mandibular arch maycall for a similar approach for its management to prevent further gingival recession and maintain gingival health.
