How Long Does It Take for a Tongue to Heal?

Answer

The tongue is one of the fastest healing parts in the human body. In general, a cut in the tongue can heal within just a few weeks. However, if the tongue injury is severe or a part of the tongue is lost, it may take months for the tongue to heal. If surgery is needed on the tongue to replace a part of the tongue, or to reattach it, healing time can be much longer, nearly a year in some cases.
