Abstract: The lingual frenectomy is often a case of controversy due to its varied classification and methods of treatment among different health care providers. Ankyloglossia or “tongue-tie” is a developmental anomaly which causes limitation in tongue mobility. This reduced mobility causes problems in articulation of speech, feeding issues, social, mechanical psychological problems in children seen with this abnormality. This is a case report of a child with posterior anklyoglossia having speech abnormalities and a simple, safe and effective way to treat it.
