Gap in teeth after brace removal requiring frenectomy


I have had my braces removed and within 2 months a gap started to appear inbetween my two front teeth as well as an overjet of my top set of teeth. Upon returning to my orthodontist he advised that I would have to get a frenectonomy (both the one just under my lip and under my tongue) before he will give me aligners to put the teeth back. Has anyone had this happen to them? Surely the fact that I had a tight frenulum/am a bit tongue tied would have been noticed over the two years that I had the braces on for?

Thank you!!
