Is That In Your Mouth?

  At your dental visit it may seem like we concentrate on your teeth and gums, and while that is true, there are other important things in there that need some attention too! Things Like:   The Tongue: It’s a big hunk of super-strong muscle in the middle of your mouth, and besides being fun to stick out at mean people, it plays a crucial role in digestion by moving food towards the teeth for chewing and then back to the esophagus for swallowing.   The uvula: That thing which resembles a punching bag in the back of your mouth is not 100% understood, but we are pretty sure it helps in speech, keeping the mouth and throat moist, and the gag reflex.   Salivary glands: Bite on a lemon and you may see one of the three sets of these at work!

Also, inhalers used to treat asthma may irritate the back roof of the mouth, causing a reddish lesion. If ignored, this area can become infected. This infection can spread and affect the throat and rest of the mouth, according to a study that appears in AGD’s General...
