    also called lingual frenum----- the band of tissue that extends from the floor of the mouth to the inferior surface of the tongue.

    I tore mine one, really hurt.

    I had mine surgical cut when I was a baby, I couldn't move my tongue because of malformation or something (I can't rememebr I was a baby )

    Now it is all better, but sure does look weird, lol. Thought I would share, it is not everyday you hear someone talking about it.
