Frenulum of Lower Lip

We just learned about the White Roll at the top of the upper lip.

Another part of the mouth is the Frenulum of Lower Lip.

We learned before about the little piece of skin under the tongue called the frenulum.
It is not the only thing called a frenulum in the body though!

Another frenulum is down at the bottom middle of the inside of the lower lip, right where it meets the gums.
If you put your tongue down there you can usually feel a little piece of skin there.
