There are also additional structural issues that can mimic acid reflux. One such issue is a lip or tongue tie. Both the lip tie (maxillary lip tie) and tongue tie (ankyloglossia) involve an unusually short band of tissue interfering with proper connection to the inside of the mouth.

Tongue tie is a condition in which the bottom of the tongue is attached to the floor of the mouth by a band of tissue called the lingual frenulum.
