An abnormal labial frenum can lead to gingival recession either by hindering plaque control or causing muscle tension. It can also have aesthetic implications and potentially impact the outcome of orthodontic treatment, particularly in cases of midline diastema. The management of such an abnormal frenum typically involves performing a frenectomy. This case report highlights the use of the Z-plasty technique to remove abnormal maxillary labial frenum in a 36-year-old female patient.
