Ankyloglossia is defined as a condition in which the tip of the tongue cannot be protruded beyond the lower incisor teeth because of a short lingual frenulum. The prevalence of ankyloglossia is 4.8%. An unusually short lingual frenum results in complications in speech, oral hygiene, lingual recession, etc. To have a healthy lifestyle, treatment becomes necessary. Lingual frenectomy is the treatment of choice. With the advent of lasers, the treatment has become simple, precise, and less discomfort compared to the conventional. The present case report deals with the treatment of ankyloglossia using 980 nm diode laser.
