Frenulum Labialis

Figure 1.86. Frenulum (frenum) labialis superior. The frenulum is a continuation of the fibrous median raphe of die maxilla. It may be prominent and unusually thick and is often associated with deep notching of the alveolar ridge of the maxilla.

Figure 1.85. In this infant with neonatal teeth, note the small white hamartomatous masses on the ventral and dorsal surfaces of the tongue and the ankyloglossia. These findings are typical of the orofaciodigital syndrome, Type I.
