Tongue tie is a condition of the mouth that decreases the mobility of the tongue. The tongue is anchored to the floor of the mouth by a band of tissue called the frenulum. When this band of tissue is too short or tight, the tongue is not able to move properly. This can result in feeding problems shortly after birth and in speech problems at an early age. When necessary, a procedure cmay be performed, called frenuloplasty, in which the frenulum is released in order to allow for improved movement of the tongue.
