Usually the biggest warning signs that we see in the mouth are not things that people can generally look in their own mouth and say, “Oh, Google says I have this …”. The things that we are looking for are:
- Changes in the soft tissues
- Changes in the tongue
- Changes in the gums
- Changes in the soft palette
Those changes are the most likely things that are going to show up the quickest, in terms of an overall body problem. Issues with the teeth take a lot longer to come to fruition where someone might recognize there is a body ailment. More often than not, we’re looking at the soft tissues. Those are the things that are going to be a telltale sign of a health problem.
