What is Tongue Tie?
The lingual frenulum (or frenum), is a remnant of tissue in the midline between the undersurface of the tongue and the floor of the mouth. When it interferes with normal tongue function it is called “symptomatic tongue-tie” or “symptomatic ankyloglossia”. Tongue-tie can thereby adversely affect breastfeeding. Research is urgently needed to elucidate the implications that tongue-tie and other oral restrictions may have on chewing, swallowing, regurgitation, digestion, speech and breathing disorders.
