Ankyloglossia and its surgical management

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Maya Indurkar and Dr. Krutika Thakur
ABSTRACT:Ankyloglossia or tongue-tie is the result of a tight and short lingual frenulum which causes difficulty in breast feeding, eating and speech articulation due to limited tongue movement. In this condition, the tip of the tongue cannot be protruded beyond the lower incisor teeth because of a short lingual frenum. In this article, we have reported a 26 year old female patient with tongue-tie who complained of difficult in speech. She underwent frenectomy procedure under local anaesthesis without any complications. This was followed by speech therapy sessions.
