Preoperative speech pathology evaluation documented articulation problems thought due to ankyloglossia in 15 of 21 children. Postoperative evaluation in 15 of these children showed improvement in articulation in 9, no change in 4 who had normal speech preoperatively, and an ongoing articulation disorder in 2. Parent perception of speech intelligibility on a scale of 1 to 5 improved from 3.4 to.
Ankyloglossia or tongue-tie is a common congenital disorder involving the lingual frenulum (Fig. 55-9). Neonates with diminished tongue mobility resulting from a foreshortened frenulum may have problems in sucking and feeding. Because the frenulum is thin and relatively avascular in neonates and young infants, it can often be incised as an office procedure. In older children the greatest.
In the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Leader (Dec. 2005) A. Kummer concludes the following: “There is virtually no evidence in the literature to establish a definite causal relationship between ankyloglossia (tongue tie) and speech disorders.” In fact, this article lists several studies which have been conducted and were unable to find a causal relationship between.
The majority of SPs note a beneficial role for surgical correction of ankyloglossia for patients who suffer from a speech disorder attributable to the condition. Of 92 SPs who report having treated at least one patient who underwent surgery, 51 (56%) report surgery frequently or always helped the patients’ speech, or helped the patient(s) make progress in speech therapy.
Ankyloglossia can also lead to speech articulation or mechanical issues. Tongue-tie will not affect a child’s ability to learn speech and will not cause speech delay, but it may cause issues with articulation, or the way the words are pronounced. The mechanical issues most frequently noted with tongue-tie are difficulty licking the lips, keeping the teeth clean, licking an ice cream cone.
Untreated tongue-tie may not cause any problems as a child gets older, and any tightness may resolve naturally as the mouth develops. However, tongue-tie can sometimes cause problems such as speech difficulties and difficulty eating certain foods. Speak to a GP if you think you or your child are having problems caused by tongue-tie.Learn More
Speech disorder - Speech disorder - Major types of speech disorders: In international terminology, disorders of the voice are described as dysphonia. Depending on the underlying cause, the various types of dysphonia are subdivided by the specifying adjective. Thus, a vocal disorder stemming from paralysis of the larynx is a paralytic dysphonia; injury (trauma) of the larynx may produce.Learn More

Messner and Lalakea studied speech in children with ankyloglossia. They noted that the phonemes likely to be affected due to ankyloglossia include sibilants and lingual sounds such as 'r'. In addition, the authors also state that it is uncertain as to which patients will have a speech disorder that can be linked to ankyloglossia and that there is no way to predict at a young age which patients.Learn More

Ankyloglossia is a congenital condition characterized by an abnormally short, thickened, or tight lingual frenulum that restricts mobility of the tongue. While it can be associated with other craniofacial abnormalities, it is most often an isolated anomaly. It variably causes reduced tongue mobility and has been associated with functional limitations in breastfeeding, swallowing, articulation.Learn More
INTRODUCTION. Ankyloglossia, or tongue-tie, is a congenital anomaly in which a short, lingual frenulum or a highly-attached genioglossus muscle restricts tongue movement (ie, restrictive lingual frenulum) (picture 1A-B).The definition of ankyloglossia is not standardized and there is wide variation of opinion regarding its clinical significance and optimal management ().Learn More

The common term for ankyloglossia is tongue tie. In this condition, the tongue is literally “tied,” or tethered, to the floor of the mouth, inhibiting both speech and eating. A child is born with this condition. The tongue is one of the most important muscles involved in swallowing and speech. Without free range of motion, these activities.Learn More
Ankyloglossia, also known as tongue-tie, is a congenital oral anomaly that may decrease mobility of the tongue tip and is caused by an unusually short, thick lingual frenulum, a membrane connecting the underside of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Ankyloglossia varies in degree of severity from mild cases characterized by mucous membrane bands to complete ankyloglossia whereby the tongue.Learn More
