A frenum is an anatomic structure formed by a fold of mucous membrane, connective tissue, and sometimes muscle fibers connecting the lips, cheek, or tongue to the jawbone. Tongue-tie or ankyloglossia is a rare congenital anomaly. In this condition, the tongue is attached to the floor of the mouth and the patient is unable to protrude his tongue properly, difficulty in speech, suction, feeding, and also difficulty in maintaining the oral hygiene has been reported. We report a case of partial ankyloglossia in a 7-year-old male child which was treated with diode laser and followed up by without having any complication.
