Your mouth...it serves for countless purposes in your life and is used on a daily basis; you can't live without your mouth. If we ever really stopped to think how complex our mouth is, we could stew for hours. Really, think about everything that resides within it right now. You have your teeth, your tongue, your gums and that little dangly thing all the way in the back that nobody ever knows the name of. It's time we start to appreciate this hole of ours and understand how much work it does for us to complete basic tasks throughout our day.
With all the wonderful, naturally beautiful biological processes our mouths undergo 24/7, there are also big and bad dangers in the world that can damage it, unfortunately. Like any part of our bodies, the mouth can contract disease, injury and pain due to many reasons. Whether it is burning our tongue on that piping sip of coffee, (which leaves a sandpaper-like taste for the rest of the day) to serious cancerous diagnoses, our mouth faces it all.
We owe it to ourselves and our precious puckers to take care as much as possible and nurture, clean and monitor the inside of our mouth. Believe it or not, our actions can make a huge difference in the overall health within our mouths. Both little and big actions make a difference. So buy a new toothbrush, book your dental appointments and open up wide to read 10 secrets you didn't know that lie inside your mouth...
