Abstract

Tongue-tie or ankyloglossia is a rare congenital anomaly. It is a short, thick, and fibrosed lingual frenulum which causes restriction in function of the tongue and also in speech. Tongue is an accessory organ, and it helps in deglutition, mastication, and speech. Tongue-tie also causes lingual recession of the teeth. So, it is necessary to treat at the right time. In this case, the patient has a lingual tongue-tie which has been treated by using a diode laser.
