Description of the study

Tongue frenum undercutting is a popular procedure used for, among others, infants and young children with sucking, feeding problems or an existing risk of a speech defect. It is a simple surgical procedure that involves cutting the membrane underneath the tongue, of which the frenulum is composed. The procedure is performed when the frenulum restricts the movement of the tongue. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. In an outpatient setting, it can only be performed if the frenulum requires gentle undercutting. In cases of severe hypertrophy, the procedure is required to be performed in the hospital. Qualification for the procedure is made by the doctor during a consultation visit.


  • For infants and toddlers with sucking, feeding problems or existing risk of speech defects.
