Part Description

LP242689-0   Frenum involvement site
A frenum is a thin fold of mucous membrane with enclosed muscle fibers that attaches the lips to the alveolar mucosa and underlying periosteum and provides stability. A frenulum is a small frenum. Various periodontal disorders can affect the frena, and the location of the affected frena may help guide treatment. In addition, specific frena abnormalities are associated with certain syndromes, including Ehlers-Danlos and oro-facial-digital syndrome. [PMID: 23633765] Source: Regenstrief LOINC, PMID: 23633765
