Untying a tongue tie using diode laser: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Anumita Deka, Dr. Ankita Garg, Dr. Vinay Mohan and Dr. Satendra Sharma
ABSTRACT:Tongue tie or ankyloglossia, causes the tongue to become fused to the floor of the mouth. The tongue's mobility is slightly hampered by the short, thick lingual frenulum. This developmental aberration has an impact on speech, oral hygiene maintenance, and other areas. The salivary gland duct at the mouth's floor and other crucial tissues must be protected from damage during surgery in this situation. As a result, LASERs have been employed frequently in a variety of soft tissue surgeries, simplifying them and improving their results. Our case focuses on the most effective management of ankyloglossia using a 980 nm diode laser.
