Post frenectomy, the goals include being able to move the tongue horizontally (in and out) without touching the lower lip or teeth or seeing any lip involvement. I recommend 3Way Mouth Props as the tool to keep the mandible stable as the client learns the movement/excursion. Then the prop is slowly removed. Also, the client should be able to move from lip corner to lip corner, again without any extraneous mandibular movement.
