Functional frenuloplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to alleviate the limitations of tongue tie, aka ankyloglossia. The surgery involves releasing an unusually tight or short lingual frenulum, a small band of tissue beneath the tongue, to improve the tongue's range of motion.
Functional frenuloplasty offers several advantages, including improved quality of life for infants and adults experiencing tongue tie-related difficulties. For babies, it can enhance breastfeeding and reduce maternal nipple pain. A functional frenuloplasty supports speech development and clarity and alleviates the frustration or discomfort associated with tongue mobility limitations. While the procedure is safe and effective, proper evaluation and aftercare are essential for optimal outcomes.
