What is a tongue tie?

The strand of tissue shaped like a cord (lingual frenulum), that attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth, can sometimes be too short, causing a restriction in movement and strength of the tongue.

Although most of the time the tight frenulum is easy to see and identify, sometimes the tight cord is underneath the skin causing a submucosal or posterior tongue-tie.

This restriction can result in a poor latch, nipple pain, and other complication with breastfeeding. Aside from nursing, a tied tongue has been linked to other issues during the child’s development from infancy to adulthood.
