Causes of being Tongue Tied
Usually, before birth, the lingual frenulum separates. This allows the tongue free range of motion. When a newborn is tongue-tied the lingual frenulum is still attached to the bottom of the tongue. Why this happens is unknown, all though it has been known to run in families.
