ABSTRACT
The tongue is an important oral structure that affects speech, position of teeth, periodontal tissue, nutrition, swallowing, nursing, and certain social activities. Ankyloglossia (tongue tie) is a congenital anomaly characterized by an abnormally short, thick lingual frenulum which affects movement of tongue. Though the effect of ankyloglossia in general appears to be a minor condition, but a major difference exists concerning the guidelines for tongue-tie division. There are no accepted practical criteria for the management of such condition, and hence this paper aims at bringing all the compilation in examination, diagnosis, treatment, and management of tongue tie together for better clinical approach.

Mentions: Case Number 3. An 11-year-old male patient reported to Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry with the chief complaint of improper speech, and his parents also reported that he was not able to chew solid foods. Clinical examination revealed that patient had ankyloglossia with thick frenum, restricted tongue movements like protrusion, and lifting of the tip of the tongue and a bifid or heart shape of the anterior tip of the tongue, was observed. To assess the extent of limitation of tongue movement, the mouth was carefully inspected under adequate illumination with a tongue depressor (Figure 3).
