Your Mouth is Made up of More Than Just Teeth

Your mouth is made up of more than just teeth, so good oral health goes beyond simply brushing and flossing! In addition to your teeth, your mouth is made up of gums, oral mucosa, the upper and lower jaw, the tongue, salivary glands, the uvula, and the frenulum. All of these structures play an important role when it comes to good dental health and are routinely examined when you receive dental care. The next time you’re brushing your teeth, spend a minute looking at the parts of the mouth that lie farther inside the oral cavity!
