Know Your Mouth!!

The oral cavity, also known as the mouth, is the first part of the digestive system and an essential

component of the human anatomy. It is the opening through which food enters the body and is

the site of several important functions.

The oral cavity is bounded by the lips externally and extends to the back of the throat

Here are some key features and structures within the oral cavity:

  1. Teeth: The oral cavity contains the teeth, which are used for biting, chewing, and grinding

food. Adults typically have 32 teeth, including incisors, canines, premolars, and molars.

  1. Gums (Gingiva): The gums surround and support the teeth, providing protection and

anchoring them to the underlying bone.

  1. Tongue: The tongue is a muscular organ located on the floor of the oral cavity. It plays a

crucial role in taste perception, speech, swallowing, and cleaning the mouth.

  1. Salivary Glands: There are several salivary glands within the oral cavity, including the parotid,

submandibular, and sublingual glands. These glands produce saliva, which aids in digestion,

lubricates the oral cavity, and helps protect teeth from decay.
