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: Using the Kotlow's criteria and Hazelbaker's assessment tool, preoperative and postoperative scores were recorded. After 1-year followup, significant improvement in prognosis of symptoms of ankyloglossia was observed (Figures 7, 8, and 9). Free tongue movement increased from 7, 9, and 8 mm to 13, 14, and 15 mm (Table 3), respectively, and functional score of 9, 10, and 10 and appearance score of 6, 6, and 7 were changed to 14, 13, 12, and 9, 9, and 10 (Table 4), respectively. Speech in case number 3 also significantly improved (Table 5).
