Dry Mouth: This can be caused by common antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, antihistamines, anti-inflammatory drugs and narcotics in addition to drugs used for glaucoma and bladder

spasms and urinary retention as well as antihypertensives. When the mouth is chronically dry, the teeth, oral mucosa and soft tissue are easily inflamed, painful and prone to infection. This environment commonly leads to tooth decay and necrosis of the nerves innervating the teeth.

Tooth Discoloration: a common side effect of some antibiotics.

Gingival Hyperplasia: a condition defined as overgrowth of the gum tissue. It is commonly caused by seizure medications, heart medications, medications for high blood pressure and immunosuppressant medications.

Oral Lesions: This is defined as soft tissue discoloration and inflammation. This can be caused by drugs used for blood pressure, immunosuppressants, oral contraceptives and chemotherapy drugs.

Abnormal Bleeding: This can be caused by drugs such as aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), steroids and anticoagulants, which are used to thin the blood in common conditions associated with strokes and certain diseases associated with the heart and arrhythmias.

Jaw Clenching and Teeth Grinding: These can be side effects of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. A diet rich in sugars and sugar-forming foods cultivate the growth of parasites, viruses and bacteria. This affects our metabolism and stimulates the nervous system causing it to be "over charged" and resulting in the clinging and grinding of the jaw.

[Dr. Trevor Cook]

The make-up of the tongue

A vital, highly active, sensitive organ, the beginning and the only visible part of the digestive tract. Sometimes called the mirror of the stomach. It can prove to be a key-factor in determining many conditions and the overall health.

The tongue is a flexible muscular organ of the mouth. It is meant for tasting, moisturising, licking, kissing, mastication of food, swallowing and speech. Its muscles are attached to the lower jaw and to a bone above the larynx.

Its rough texture produced by tiny nodules or papillae projecting from its upper surface. Sensory nerves or taste buds situated at the sides and the base of the tongue and the motor nerve distributed across the muscular substance.

Ask to protrude the tongue and check for any deviation, discomfort or tremors. Examine the dorsum of the colour and any coating or furring. Enlarged or flabby? Note the condition of the papillae.

Any cracks, fissures or patches on the tongue? Ask the client to elevate the tip with the mouth wide open. Camine the undersurface of the anterior tongue. While conducting this examination it is pertinent to study the lips, teeth, gums, palate, fauces (the passage from the mouth pharynx), tonsils and pharynx.

The healthy tongue is free of any discomfort, such as pain, stinging, burning, swelling, excrescences or numbness. It is moist, with a rough surface, and has an evenly coloured pink surface overlaying pale red. Inspection of the client’s tongue is, therefore, a very useful starting point in most consultations. -
