Our expert says:
Some people have a short frenulum ( a birth defect) - the thin thingy beneath your tongue that fixes it to the floor of the mouth. This can prevent you from moving your tongue properly. It can be lenghtened by cutting it under anaesthetic by a maxillo facial surgeon - you can ask your dentist to refer you to one nearby.
