About Mouth and Teeth

Having dinner with friends can illustrate the range of jobs done by the mouth and teeth; the teeth, tongue, and jaw work together to chew, taste, and swallow food; smiling lips reveal emotions and feelings; and conversation flows as words are formed by the teeth, tongue, and lips. Oral health takes into account the wellbeing of all of these features, so researchers look to better understand conditions like tooth decay and gum disease, speech and language disorders, birth defects like cleft palate or cleft lip, and jaw conditions such as TMJ(tempromandibular joint) disorders.
