Treatment includes Frenectomy; Tissue excision to bring about freedom of movement for the tongue and relieve it of any abnormal attachments.

With Laser technology revision of the Lingual frenum can be safely performed in newborns and children. The treatment can be done with a simple topical spray of local anaesthetic or occasionally an infiltration of a small amount of local anaesthesia.

One such case, of a seven-year-old boy, who reported with similar symptoms is presented along with a one year follow up of the situation.
