In addition, there is another frenum under the tongue. If this frenum is attached too close to the end of the tongue it can adversely affect swallowing and speech. Sometimes this is referred to as being "tongue-tied".  
A Frenectomy is a simple procedure where either part or all of the frenum in question is removed in order to return a healthy balance to the mouth. after
