Frenum restriction occurs in about 4% of children, it is also known as a tongue-tie or lip-tie. This restricts the child's tongue and/or lips from movement due to excessive webbing. The effects can be moderate inconveniences such as limited tongue mobility, or more severe, such as the inability to nurse during infancy.
