Internal Frenectomy and Tunneling Connective Tissue Graft For Complete Root Coverage

A common cause of gingival recession is a muscle (frenum) attachment too close to the edge of the tissue. We repositioned this stringlike attachment for our patient along with placing a tunneling connective tissue graft. The result was complete coverage of her root and prevention of future recession due to the pull of the frenum.
