Your mouth can say more about you than you ever thought possible. In this health news article, researchers examine different parts of the mouth and what they can say about your overall health. Some areas of the body that were taken into review included:
- The Tongue- if the tongue’s color is pale, then you could have an issue with anemia or iron deficiency). Iron helps produce energy and hemoglobin.
- Your Saliva- if you are left with dry mouth, then you can experience more tooth decay, oral yeast infections, and gum disease.
- Gums- if your gums are puffy, bright red in color, or with small abscesses, then you could be experiencing the first signs of gum disease.
All of these areas of the body are important to take note of so that you always have a pulse on the state of your oral health.
