Tongue frenulum

The tongue frenulum is a delicate mucous fold that connects the tongue base to the mouth floor and limits the mobility of the tongue. In rare cases, the tongue frenulum is too short which can lead to tongue dysfunction with concomitant functional limitations. With the help of minimally invasive frenulotomy this condition can be changed easily.
