Signs of a Healthy Mouth
- The lips are pink, full, and moist & completely cover the teeth.
- Gums are a coral pink color, flat, and closely follow the contour of the natural crown. There are no cuts, ulcers, or bleeding present anywhere.
- Hygiene is impeccable. All teeth are tartar-, calculus-, and stain-free. The patient brushes and flosses on a daily basis. They are professionally cleaned regularly.
- The breath is fresh. Saliva is clear and bubbly like champagne.
- Teeth are a white/eggshell color. There are no cracks or missing pieces. All teeth are present and free of disease. Replacements or restorations are placed and in proper function.
- Teeth are straight for maximum efficiency, care, and aesthetics. All cusps are round. There are no unusual wear patterns. Teeth do not move with normal biting.
- The X-rays show no signs of disease.
- The cheeks are moist and pink.
- The airway is open and only the nose is used for breathing. The entire tongue is housed inside the mouth and never interferes with normal breathing. The tonsils are flat and pink and contained in their pillars. The uvula is pink and doesn’t obstruct the back of the throat and cause snoring or sleep apnea.
- The joints function freely without noises or limitations or pain on opening, closing, and on sideways and forward movements. None of the teeth interfere with these movements.
- A healthy mouth is free of infection, pain, or discomfort anywhere, at anytime. The mouth is the “window to the Whole Body.”
