Hello, As you are mentioning that your superior labial frenum is swollen, there can be two reasons for this swelling, -It can be possible that your upper front tooth may be infected -Second it can be possible that your labial frenum must have got hurt by hard food. I think you should first apply a topical ointment named mucopain on it and if it does not heal within 1 week than you should visit your dentist for the treatment of infection. Thank you
