We look at several things here. First of all, look at where the frenum inserts into the floor of the mouth. Is it on or right below the lower alveolar ridge? Or is it fairly far back on the floor? Also, look where the frenum inserts into the tongue itself. Is it about midway or is it closer to the tip? Or is it far down at the base of the tongue?

Sometimes a frenum is not short but is still restrictive because of the attachment location on the tongue or onto the lower alveolar ridge.

I have a pt (adult) that has lower resting posture and she presses the tip against her lower alveolar ridge which is now causing bone loss. She doesn't thrust so I am strictly working on rest posture. Do you have any recommendation for what exercises I should be using?
