Treatment of Tongue-Tie in Kolkata by Dr. Himadri Chakrabarty.

Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is a condition present at birth that restricts the tongue’s range of motion. With tongue-tie, an unusually short, thick or tight band of tissue (lingual frenulum) tethers the bottom of the tongue’s tip to the floor of the mouth, so it may interfere with breast-feeding.
Symptoms include difficulty sticking out the tongue past the lower front teeth or lifting it to the upper teeth, although many people have no symptoms.

Master Rohan (name changed) aged 10 years came to Dr. Himadri Chakrabarty with this condition. He had got slightly bent and was having trouble getting proper sleep . Dr. Himadri Chakrabarty successfully conducted the surgery with the help of LASER and the condition was resolved giving permanent relief to the patient.
