The human tongue is often referred to as the most powerful muscle in the body. But your tongue is actually comprised of eight muscles working together as a multi-use tool. Washington Irving once said, “The tongue is the only instrument that gets sharper with use.” Both wars and romances have begun with words rolling off the tongue, and a healthy one helps us taste food, swallow, and talk.
Changes sometimes occur on the surface of the tongue that may leave you wondering what’s going on. While discomfort characterizes some tongue conditions, many changes could go unnoticed without a quick inspection. When you visit Fibonacci Smile for care, we monitor the surfaces of your mouth for any alterations, including on and around your tongue. We can help you determine which ones reflect concerns requiring further evaluation or monitoring.
