Dr. Sakshi Patel | Dr. Sonal Gupta [2] | Dr. Simran Isha | Dr. Poornima Tripathi

Abstract: Ankyloglossia, also known as tongue tie, is a condition in which the inferior lingual frenulum is too short and attached to the tip of the tongue, limiting the tongue's normal movement. The term ankyloglossia derives from the Greek words skolios (curved) and glossa (tongue). Ankyloglossia or Tongue - tie affects speech, feeding, oral hygiene as well as social environment also. This paper reports the case of a 5 - year - old girl reported in the Department of Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry with the chief complaint of difficulty in speech.
