    Big lip frenulum?

    My son is 9 months old and I noticed his teeth are coming in gapped and his frenulum is quite thick. Does this look normal?

    Hello, one of my kids had a similar issue. We didn't really worry about it until he needed braces. We interviewed a few dentists who wanted to operate and cut it. Another said we'll deal with it later if we need to. Fortunately, his wasn't too thick and we were able to fix the gap with the braces.

    If you're concerned, speak to your family Dr. We took our kids to the dentist when they were around 2 years old. After that they were enrolled in the Government primary school program. Teeth were cleaned and checked every year for free.
