ANKYLOGLOSSIA REVIEW AND CASE REPORT
*Dr. Manish Ashtankar, Dr. Mala Dixit Baburaj, Dr. Lashika Tambe and Dr. Shradha Kode
Ankyloglossia, also known as tongue-tie, is a congenital oral anomaly that may decrease mobility of the tongue tip and is caused by an unusually short, thick lingual frenulum, a membrane connecting the underside of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Ankyloglossia varies in degree of severity from mild cases characterized by mucous membrane bands to complete ankyloglossia whereby the tongue is tethered to the floor of the mouth. We have reported here a 22 year old male with sever ankyloglossia treated with frenectomy and speech therapy.
Keywords: Ankyloglossia, frenectomy.
