CASTRO-RODRIGUEZ, Yuri  e  GRADOS-POMARINO, Sixto. Relationship between labial frenulum and periodontium in a Peruvian population. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.1, pp.41-43. ISSN 0719-0107.

Aberrant frenums are included within the mucogingival deformities, which can alter the function and aesthetic periodontal protection. This study aimed to evaluate the adherence of labial frenulum and establish a relationship with papillary loss and gingival recession of the anterior teeth in maxilla and in the jaw.

Materials and methods

A cross-sectional study was conducted on 97 systemically healthy patients in whom the type of frenulum (TF), the height of the frenulum (AF), the type of gingival recession, and papillary loss was evaluated in the upper maxillary and mandibular sectors.


The most prevalent frenum was the mucosal. The prevalence of TF was 54.6% and 93.8% of maxilla and mandible, respectively. The mean AF was 8.37mm ± 2.671mm for the labial frenulum in maxillary, and 8.33mm ± 1.657mm for frenulum. No relationship was found between the TF, AF with the presence and severity of papillary loss and gingival recession (P>.05).


The most common frenulum of the study population was the mucosal frenulum. There was no direct relationship between the classification and adherence of the frenulum with the presence of gingival recession or papillary loss.
