Exercise No. 327
Subject Code: 734
The 15 questions for this exercise are based on the article, "Prevalence and variations of the median maxillary labial frenum in children, adolescents, and adults in a diverse population" on pages 57-60. This exercise was developed by Steven E. Holbrook, DMD, MAGD, in association with the General Dentistry Self-Instruction committee.
Reading the article and successfully completing this exercise will enable you to:
- identify the origin and histology of the median maxillary labial frenum (MMLF);
- recognize variations of the MMLF;
- identify the location and prevalence of these variations; and
- understand that these variations do not represent a pathological process.
