TY - JOUR. T1 - Correlation of subclinical candidal colonization of the dorsal tongue surface with the Walter Reed staging scheme for patients infected with HIV-1. AU - Hamilton, James N.. AU - Thompson, Stevan H.. AU - Scheidt, Michael J.. AU - McQuade, Michael J.. AU - Van Dyke, Thomas. AU - Plowman, Kent. PY - 1992/1/1. Y1 - 1992/1/1. N2 - The correlation between subclinical candidal colonization of the dorsal tongue surface and the Walter Reed staging scheme for patients positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) antibody is reported. Of 76 cytologic smears of the dorsal tongue surface, 12 (16.2%) demonstrated subclinical colonization. The mean peripheral helper T-lymphocyte count for patients with subclinical colonization was 304 ± 226 cells/mm3 and was not significantly different from seropositive patients without colonization (411 ± 209 cells/mm3). The Walter Reed scheme for assessing progressive immunodysregulation did not significantly correlate with the presence of subclinical ...
Normal tongue tie can make the tongue so easily, can be naturally extended extraoral tongue, or lick up the upper gum.But few childrens tongue tie growth is not normal, there may be tongue tie is too short (commonly known as climbing tongue) phenomenon, clinical manifestations of the tongue can not normally reach freedom, tongue protruding mouth portion is less than the length of normal children, and When tongue protrusion tongue because the tongue is pulled tendons and appear sunken, tongue W shape (when normal V-shaped tongue out tongue), may also affect breast-feeding or friction with the lower front teeth, ulceration.. When a child can not be upturned mouth tongue, the gums can not lick or extends through the upper lip, after the older affected the normal pronunciation. For the lingual frenulum is too short question, many parents there are several errors.. Speech. Some parents found the baby tongue tie is relatively short, when the mouth tongue can not bend, tongue activities are not ...
A large tongue was regarded as a possible cause of mandibular prognathism by Köle in 1965 [13], and on many further occasions. They also found that those subjects with mandibular prognathism showed tongue volumes similar to those of the control group [6]. So the exact role of the tongue in SCIII patients had not been clarified as yet. However, the majority of this data were without accurate quantitative information on tongues volumes.. As the tongue is encased within the oral cavity when at rest, direct measurement of its real dimensions within the oral cavity is difficult. Therefore, various techniques have been developed for evaluating the tongues size in vivo: direct tongue measurements [14], different impression techniques [9] and the fluid displacement method [15] but were unable to measure the interior portion of the tongue. Furthermore, different imaging techniques have been introduced to assess the tongue volume: cephalometrics [16], computed tomography (CT) [17], cone-beam computed ...
The deep lingual artery (or ranine artery) is the terminal portion of the lingual artery after the sublingual artery is given off. As seen in the picture, it travels superiorly in a tortuous course along the under (ventral) surface of the tongue, below the longitudinalis inferior, and above the mucous membrane. It lies on the lateral side of the genioglossus, the main large extrinsic tongue muscle, accompanied by the lingual nerve. However, as seen in the picture, the deep lingual artery passes inferior to the hyoglossus (the cut muscle on the bottom) while the lingual nerve (not pictured) passes superior to it (for a comparison, the hypoglossal nerve, pictured, passes superior to the hyoglossus). At the tip of the tongue, it is said to anastomose with the artery of the opposite side, but this is denied by Hyrtl.[citation needed] In the mouth, these vessels are placed one on either side of the frenulum linguæ. ...
The tongue muscles form two distinct groups - extrinsic muscles, whose fibers arise outside of the tongue and then converge into the substance of the tongue, and intrinsic muscles, whose fibers are completely within the tongue. Both groups develop from the occipital somites at the base of the developing cranium. The ventral motor roots from the brainstem-spinal cord transition enter these somites to form the hypoglossal nerve, which innervates all of the tongue muscles. In general, the extrinsic muscles modify the position of the tongue, while the intrinsic muscles modify its shape. Tongue muscles do not act in isolation, but in varied combinations to produce the wide array of intricate tongue motions. These motions are essential for the acquisition, manipulation, and swallowing of food, and also play important roles in molding the vocal sounds, produced by the larynx, into the words we speak ...
Human tongue surface with bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of bacteria (yellow) amongst epithelial cells on the surface of a human tongue. Epithelial cells are flat, scale-like squamous cells that are constantly shed and replaced.

Men, whose tongues are sharp swords? Yes, some men have tongues like that. Maybe you date men, whose tongues are sharp swords or youre married to one. What do you do to stop that abusive behavior?. Denial. Maybe you look the other way and pretend nothing is happening. Your family, friends, and coworkers see and hear it, but you cant look at it. If you admit your spouse has a tongue like a sharp sword, then you must do something about it. The thought of confrontation and the work involved not to tolerate that abuse any longer may overwhelm you. It may seem easier to deny it.. "Cindy" stayed in an abusive marriage for years. She told me, "I thought all men talked to their wives that way. I didnt think I could do anything about it." Minimization. On the other hand, you may admit you date men, whose tongues are sharp swords, or youre married to one. Perhaps you recite the childrens rhyme: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never break me.". That isnt true. Because of that ...
Physicians by the help of the tongue are giving many diagnosis. It can easily tell the sign of cold, hepatitis C, fever, bad intestine performance or headaches. Thats why when we are visiting doctors, first of all they are checking our tongue.. If the person is healthy the tongues color is pink and clean, covered with little bumps which recognize taste.. If the tongue is having a red, white or black color, it is indicating that something isnt right with our body.. The swollen tongue, it may indicates on having an allergy. The dark tongue, usually means extreme antibiotics use or AIDS symptoms.. The long ridges tongue, usually is indicating on sexually transmitted illness, known as syphilis. Sturdy and sleek tongue is telling that you have deficiency of Vitamin B12.. Bumps, sores and sudden tongue bleeding, are the gravest things, which can be seen to a tongue. Unfortunately, in the latest decade, those are the most often indicators of early tongue cancer signals.. Many studies have been made ...
Note: there are two types of tongue tie. The one you probably think of, when the tongue is connected to the bottom of the mouth all the way to the tip, is an anterior tongue tie. A posterior tongue tie is tied further back, where its difficult to see and diagnose. A tie restricts the movement of the tongue and makes breastfeeding difficult and painful; posterior ties restrict the motion of the middle and back of the tongue, essential to the tongues wave action and suction. Back in the day, when everyone breastfed, tongue ties were cut by midwives as soon as they were noticed. When the country moved to so much bottle feeding, doctors stopped clipping tongue ties. Its only very recently that there has been a resurgence of evidence that tongue clipping is a quick, easy way to improve a breastfeeding relationship thats failing because of a tie ...
The position of the tongue is very important. The tongue is a powerful muscle that can change the shape of your face and teeth, and the way you talk and breathe.. To have the correct facial feature, the tongue needs to be in the right position. The correct posture for the tongue is when your lips are touching each other (without straining); your tongue is relaxed along the palate, with the rear end of the tongue pulled back and the tip of the tongue resting behind the top front teeth (not pushing it).. If the tongue is not placed like this and is putting pressure on the bottom part of the mouth, the maxilla- upper jaw bone- changes structure, resulting in a long and narrow shaped face. The lack of pressure from the tongue pushes the cheeks inside and cause the teeth to crowd.. Other than this, the position of the tongue matters because it can cause breathing problems, including sleep apnea.. The short lingual frenum leads to a restricted use of the tongue and a lower placement of it in the ...
A sore tongue is usually a symptom of irritation or inflammation of the surface or deep tissue of the tongue. The tongue is one of the several parts of the mouth cavity and any disease that affects the tongue may also involve the other structures like the lips, gum, teeth, inner cheek lining, palate and back of the throat. However, there are cases where the soreness of the tongue occurs on its own without involving the other structures of the mouth cavity, or where the soreness is most severe in the tongue. Soreness can also occur in the absence of any disease of the tissue of the tongue. This may be related to nerve pain - either irritation of the nerve or referred pain from surrounding structures with a common nerve supply.. A sore tongue is a symptom of some underlying disease and not a condition on its own. It is important to understand the basic structure and different parts of the tongue in order to identify the location of the soreness and other tongue symptoms that may be present.. ...
Motor symptoms in Huntingtons Disease (HD) are commonly assessed by the Unified Huntingtons Disease Rating Scale-Total Motor Score (UHDRS-TMS). However, the UHDRS-TMS is limited by interrater variability, its categorical nature, and insensitivity in premanifest subjects. More objective and quantitative measures of motor phenotype may complement the use of the UHDRS-TMS as outcome measure and increase the power and sensitivity of clinical trials. Deficits in tongue protrusion are well acknowledged in HD and constitute a subitem of the UHDRS-TMS. We, therefore, investigated whether objective and quantitative assessment of tongue protrusion forces (TPF) provides measures that (1) correlate to the severity of motor phenotype detected in the UHDRS-TMS in symptomatic HD, (2) detect a motor phenotype in premanifest HD gene-carriers, and (3) exhibit a correlation to the genotype as assessed by a disease burden score (based on CAG-repeat length and age). Using a precalibrated force transducer, the ...
We examined changes in the expression and localization of connexin proteins and transcripts by means of immunofluorescence and in situ hybridization in normal conditions, wound healing and carcinogenesis using hamster tongue epithelium, in which differentiation, migration and growth of keratinocytes takes place physiologically and pathologically. In normal hamster tongue epithelium, immunofluorescent staining showed that Cx26 and Cx43 proteins were localized differently during differentiation of keratinocytes, but in in situ hybridization, the localization of Cx26 and Cx43 transcripts overlapped considerably, suggesting that the different localization of Cx26 and Cx43 proteins in squamous epithelium is largely regulated at post-transcriptional levels. During wound healing, the expression and localization of connexin proteins and transcripts were changed drastically. Shortly (6 h) after injury the expression of Cx26 and Cx43 proteins decreased at wound edges, but by 1-3 days after injury the ...
To clean your tongue, brush the entire surface with a clean toothbrush, applying light pressure from the back of the tongue to the front. Alternatively, take a good length of floss and wrap each end around your middle fingers. Apply downward pressure with your index fingers and drag the floss from the back to the front of your tongue several times. Rinse the floss in between scrapings. or you can use a tongue cleaner (also called a tongue scraper) is an oral hygiene device designed to clean the bacterial build-up, food debris, fungi, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. Tongue cleaners lift and remove these materials from the tongue surface. The tongue cleaner should be used before using tooth brush in the morning, and not after. ...
What are the most common tongue piercing problems?. To pierce a tongue, the body piercer must first hold it steady with a clamp. Next, a hollowed, pointed metal needle is driven through the tongue. Finally, the piercer attaches the tongue bar to the bottom end of the needle, and then drags it upwards through the tongue. Two metal screw-on balls are then used to secure the tongue bar.. Most commonly, severe pain and swelling are experienced for several days after the piercing episode. Moreover, the new holes in the tongue are especially infection-prone, because the oral cavity is home to many bacteria colonies. In the medium term, saliva production may increase as the body responds to a completely unnatural entity in the mouth.. Are there long-term problems associated with tongue piercing?. Long-term problems with tongue piercings are very common. The screw-on balls constantly scrape against tooth enamel, making teeth susceptible to decay and gums susceptible to periodontal disease. Soft tissue ...

Tongue Diagnosis. The tongue is the organ of taste and speech. Size, shape, contour, surface, margins, and color are the characteristics one can observe on the tongue. A pale tongue may indicate an anemic condition or lack of blood in the body. An yellowish tongue may suggest that excess bile present in the gallbladder or a possible liver disorder. A blue tongue is normally an indication of problems with the heart. Different areas of the tongue corresponds to different organs of the body. Hence by correlating the location of the blemishes on the tongue, the Ayurvedic practitioner can determine which organs of the body are out of balance.
The tongue is a muscular hydrostat that forms part of the floor of the oral cavity. The left and right sides of the tongue are separated by a vertical section of fibrous tissue known as the lingual septum. This division is along the length of the tongue save for the very back of the pharyngeal part and is visible as a groove called the median sulcus. The human tongue is divided into anterior and posterior parts by the terminal sulcus which is a V-shaped groove. The apex of the terminal sulcus is marked by a blind foramen, the foramen cecum, which is a remnant of the median thyroid diverticulum in early embryonic development. The anterior oral part is the visible part situated at the front and makes up roughly two-thirds the length of the tongue. The posterior pharyngeal part is the part closest to the throat, roughly one-third of its length. These parts differ in terms of their embryological development and nerve supply. The anterior tongue is, at its apex (or tip), thin and narrow, it is ...
This can indicate a yeast infection. Our tongue normally has an amount of naturally-occurring bacteria and yeast. However, when we consume antibiotics, they can kill of the bacteria on our tongues, and the yeast takes over and overruns the tongue, giving rise to the white appearance. This type of yeast infection cannot be treated using over-the-counter medicine. Go see a doctor instead.. If you see wrinkles…. You can get wrinkles on your forehead, your cheeks… and your tongue as well! The tongue ages along with the rest of our body and fissures and cracks can appear. This is no problem of course, unless fungal infections occur within these crevices, usually due to poor dental hygiene. Signs include pain, a foul smell and even a burning sensation. So seriously, in addition to brushing your teeth, brush your tongue!. If your tongue is swollen or unusually large…. This can indicate hyperthyroidism, which means you have a deficiency in thyroid hormones. This slows down you metabolism and you ...
After her controversial VMA performance, Miley Cyrus has constantly been in the headlines with her antics and her favourite pose for the paparazzi is currently to stick her tongue out; however, this has led some experts and music industry colleagues to question whether the appearance of Mileys tongue indicates some health problems. Singing legend Cher recently voiced her opinion, saying Chick, dont stick out your tongue if its coated.. The co-founder of victoriahealth.com Shabir Daya also weighed in on the issue, commenting that your tongue is a window into whats happening in your body; colour, coating, and cracks are all indicators of the state of your health.. Miley might not think sticking her tongue out reveals much about her health and eating habits, but Daya added that a healthy tongue has a thin, white and moist coating and any deviation from this indicates possible problems. He added that small protrusions in the tongue can harbour food allowing bacteria and fungi to thrive ...
Question - Have a swollen papillae on tongue. Hurts while swallowing. No fever. Reason? . Ask a Doctor about diagnosis, treatment and medication for Reflux esophagitis, Ask an ENT Specialist
Fungiform papillae: Mushroom-like. Larger but much less frequent than filiform papillae. Has a stratified squamous non-cornified epithelial covering and a highly vascularized connective tissue core giving it a red hue in the living state. Although not seen here, the epithelium may contain taste buds. Small secondary papillae are formed beneath the superficial epithelial cover of the primary connective tissue papillae. Filiform papillae: Threadlike. Smaller and much more numerous than the fungiform variety. Epithelial lining is keratinized stratified squamous and is devoid of taste buds. Thin connective tissue core. Nerve fibers: Thinly myelinated sensory fibers that arborize under the epithelium. Fat cells: Part of the fatty (adipose) tissue underlying the lamina propria. Collagenous connective tissue: A fibrofatty connective tissue, which forms a bed for glands and skeletal muscle fibers and serves to anchor them. Serous gland acini: Mixed serous and mucous glands are scattered among the ...
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), pressure and noise measurements are used to study the effect of modifications to tongue and impeller geometries on the flow structure and resulting noise in a centrifugal pump. It is demonstrated that the primary sources of noise are associated with interactions of the non-uniform outflux from the impeller (jet/wake phenomenon) with the tongue. Consequently, significant reduction of noise is achieved by increasing the gap between the tongue and the impeller up to about 20% of the impeller radius. Further increase in the gap affects the performance adversely with minimal impact on the noise level. When the gap is narrow, the primary sources of noise are impingement of the wake on the tip of the tongue, and tongue oscillations when the pressure difference across it is high. At about 20% gap, the entire wake and its associated vorticity trains miss the tongue, and the only (quite weak) effect of nonuniform outflux is the impingement of the jet on the tongue. An ...
Tongue Point Naval Air Station is a former United States Navy air station which was located within the former U.S. Naval Station Tongue Point Astoria, Oregon In 1919, the United States Congress approved the construction of a submarine and destroyer base on Tongue Point, a peninsula jutting into the Columbia River East of Astoria, Oregon. Construction was not started until 1921 and was completed in 1924. However, with the military downsizing following World War I, the base was never used.[citation needed] Prior to World War II Tongue Point was designated as the site of a Naval Air Station (NAS). Ground breaking took place in 1939 but there were a numerous delays until construction was finally completed in 1943. hangars, an ordnance depot and fuel depot were constructed. PBY Catalina seaplanes then arrived and began coastal patrols. Tongue Point was also the location of the U.S. Naval Ship Yard Tongue Point for pre-commissioning and commissioning escort aircraft carriers built in shipyards in the ...

The lamina propria of the tongue extends between the lingual muscle fasciculi and contains the lingual glands of mucous, serous, and mixed types, small blood vessels, and nerves. The parasympathetic preganglionic neuron cell bodies are in the brain stem; the postganglionic neuron cell bodies are in the peripheral parasympathetic ganglia, which are associated with certain cranial nerves and innervate the viscera, glands, blood vessels, and smooth muscles. Small subsidiary ganglia occur near these ganglia (Baumann and Gajisin, 1975). The existence of nerve ganglia, within the musculature of the mammalian tongue was known (Barker, 1899). The ganglia were found along deeply placed nerve bundles in the tongue of the cat, rabbit, rat, and hedgehog; some were located close to terminal branches of the hypoglossal nerve (Gerne and Garwan, 1952). Groups of nerve cells were found in the tongue musculature of cat, lamb, monkey, and man; larger ganglia were also found on the chordalingual; and ...
Transcript. Do you have a fat tongue?. We know thats a strange question.. But researchers say if youre one of the 1 billion people globally who snore, choke, gasp or stop breathing during the night, your tongue could be a key reason.. A new study published Friday found a connection between having a fat tongue and sleep apnea.. Researchers studied 67 obese patients with obstructive sleep apnea and measured how a 10% weight loss could affect their upper airways.. They also found that patients could reduce their tongue size by losing overall body fat and that improved sleep apnea scores by more than 30%.. But researchers admit more studies need to be conducted because there are many people who suffer sleep apnea who are not overweight.. That means something else could be at play.. You can read more about the study in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.. The Closed Caption version of this video can be found here: https://sign1news.com/.

Teaching /l/ for me is really easy if the students are kids, and really hard if the students are adults. With kids, I use the tongue bite strategy. They stick out their tongues as far as the tongue will go, then lightly bite down on the protruded tongue and try to say the /l/ sound. It will sound a little strangled and silly. Do this a few times. The point is to realize that the very tip of the tongue--so important for Japanese /l/ sounds--is not as important for American /l/ (we sometimes use the tongue tip, but often use the area right behind the tongue tip, or both areas). The next step is for them to continue making an /l/ sound while very slowly sliding their tongue back into their mouth. The very slowly part is important here, because you are going to stop them when their /l/ sounds ideal. When you say stop, they immediately freeze their tongue position and say the sound repeatedly in this position. As for /r/, it helps if you model the sound three times, then they copy you three times ...
The tongue is a muscular organ in the mouth. The tongue is covered with moist, pink tissue called mucosa. Tiny bumps called papillae give the tongue its rough texture. Thousands of taste buds cover the surfaces of the papillae. Taste buds are collections of nerve-like cells that connect to nerves running into the brain.. The tongue is anchored to the mouth by webs of tough tissue and mucosa. The tether holding down the front of the tongue is called the frenum. In the back of the mouth, the tongue is anchored into the hyoid bone. The tongue is vital for chewing and swallowing food, as well as for speech.. The four common tastes are sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. A fifth taste, called umami, results from tasting glutamate (present in MSG). The tongue has many nerves that help detect and transmit taste signals to the brain. Because of this, all parts of the tongue can detect these four common tastes; the commonly described "taste map" of the tongue doesnt really exist.. ...
As the tongue is a well-vascularized organ, ischemic necrosis of the tongue is a rare disease entity. Critically ill patients with profound shock may experience end-organ hypoperfusion, which might result in tongue necrosis. However, to our best knowledge, there are no reports regarding ischemic necrosis of the tongue in surgical patients with septic shock. Two patients recently developed ischemic necrosis of the tongue in our surgical intensive care unit. Both patients had undergone emergent surgery for ischemic enteritis and developed postoperative septic shock. The first patient responded to critical treatment with a short period of circulatory shock, and the delivered dose of the vasopressor seemed to be acceptable. In contrast, the second patient developed postoperative refractory shock, and high-dose vasopressor treatment was required to maintain adequate tissue perfusion. Both patients developed ischemic necrosis of the tongue and died shortly after its emergence, despite vigorous resuscitation.
tongue cancer - a cancer that is a tumor, usually arising from squamous epithelium.In most cases, such a disease appears in a side surface of the tongue, this is explained by the fact that these areas are often subject to injury by sharp tips of the teeth.Initially, you may receive telephium, which later turns into a horny tissue or corn, which is under the mechanical action can continue to grow.Thus, even benign tumors can develop into cancer, particularly if there are several factors that contribute to its development.. main causes of tongue cancer main factors in the development of cancer are smoking and drinking, excessive drinking is too sharp and too hot food, infectious diseases tongue, stomatitis, leukoplakia, and too close contact with toxic drugs.Often the cause of tongue cancer is becoming an unhealthy diet, plenty of preservatives in the diet and the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables.Recently, scientists unanimously repeat of the viral etiology of cancer, as well as the bodys ...

I have had several recurrences of painful white bumps toward the back and on the sides of my tongue. I also had noticed before this recent episode what appeared to be thrush or a white coating on my tongue. I had drank several beers on New Years Eve the night before this recent episode. I also had used a spicy cinnamon gum, which seemed to give me tingling and irritation to these areas of my tongue. Now although the thrush appears to have gone away, I have tiny white bumps that may actually be swollen taste buds, but they are so utterly painful. I can hardly eat they are so painful. Based on past episodes, this usually subsides in a matter of days. I have been doing salt-water rinses which only give temporary relief. I also feel malaise, which makes me wonder if this is a virus. I also wear a mouth guard and wonder if this has anything to do with it. A few months ago I went to get the bumps checked out. A swab was taken to test for Herpes, but the results were negative.

While our teeth tell us a great deal, it is important to understand other parts of our mouth can signal poor health. By simply examining your tongue, you can learn a great deal about your health. In fact, in Chinese medicine it is believed that the tongue reflects all the diseases of the body.. Here are some specific characteristics of the tongue that you need to be aware of. Changes in color, texture and feeling can be warning signs to take action.. White Coating: When the tongue looks white and pasty, either in patches or all over, it is an indication that there is some sort of infection. Either bacterial overgrowth (thrush) or an autoimmune-related inflammatory disease can produce this.. Sore Spots: You have probably experienced a canker sore or mouth ulcer before. When they occur on the tongue, it can be very painful. Some people have a genetic predisposition to getting canker sores when they get a cold or eat citrus fruit. However, it is important to know that a normal canker sore will heal ...

I started off having my left tonsil removed because of cancer. Thought that would be that. Then they say, NOOOO, You had tonsil cancer and now you have cancer of the tongue. So I think about surgery to have part of the tongue removed and think that radiation would be a better option. I like my tongue you know. Years as a cook, chef and manager taught me to love my food. That option did not work for me. Two months later, I find out the cancer is back. Now It had taken over the tongue enough that they dare not try to save any of it. And it also has gone into lymph nodes again, the floor of my mouth and the left lower jaw bone. All of which was removed. They almost took my voice box but God gave me a miracle and cured the cancer from that. So now I can kind of tal with a a limited vocabulary but it is better than not talking at all. living with a trach is no picnic either but again, that is better than a permanent stoma which was the original plan.

The physician inserted a thin plastic cannula between the tongue and the bottle neck, and injected 60 milliliters of air. Due to the Overpressure, the purple was pushed out discolored tongue. The tongue was already swollen. The Boy remained still for 24 hours for observation in the clinic. After 14 days, there was nothing of the bruising and the swelling to see.. ...
Necrosis should be diagnosed and given a severity grade. If the necrosis involves muscle or multiple tissues in the tongue, then it is diagnosed as "tongue - necrosis." However, if the necrosis is limited to the epithelium of the tongue, the diagnosis should be "tongue, epithelium - necrosis." Secondary lesions, such as inflammation or hemorrhage, generally should not be diagnosed separately unless they are prominent components of the lesion. If the necrotic lesion is consistent with an infarct, it should be diagnosed as "necrosis," but the pathology narrative should state the lesion is consistent with an infarct ...

The invention provides a tongue scraping and cleaning device, including a head configured to be comfortably moved along the top surface of a tongue inside and outside of a mouth, the head including a base portion having an upper face and a lower face and a plurality of spaced-apart blades formed with active scraping surfaces and at least partly projecting from the upper face so as to cause the material scraped off the tongue to be trapped between the blades, and means for grasping the head and imparting controlled scraping movements along the tongue to effect its cleansing.
I´m back again. My neuro didn´t want to give me his EMG-results to post in here. I have no proof for the results he told me. I was very nervous about it and went to see another doctor. He looked at my tongue and said that he can not believe it is a fasciculation because it remains at the same place. He didn´t want to do an EMG. I have that constant twitch for months now and three days ago another one appeared. They both stay at their place. The first one is big and occurs several times a minute. Never stops. The second one is so fast that it looks like shaking my tongue. It shoots several times a second and for days now. This post goes to the tongue twitchers here. I have twitches all over my body but these on my tongue scares me so much. It seems to me that they will stay there forever and now it it progressing to other areas. I also have a hotspot on my forearm that I can´t feel but it makes the tip of my thumb move to the inside. This is going for 8 weeks now and it doesn´t stop either. ...
Ideally a healthy tongue will be pink in color, look clean, and have no coating. If there is a coating, it may indicate the presence of ama. Ama is a by- product or sign of improper digestion. It results from undigested and unabsorbed food.. Most people have a slight coating at the back of the tongue which is a sign of toxins in the colon. These people may be quite healthy, its just ama that has built up in the stomach or small intestine and moved into the colon. If the entire tongue is coated, it is a sign of ama throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract.. If the tongue is white it indicates kapha-type ama and may indicate accumulation of mucous like qualities; yellowish green ama is pitta type and may indicate some heat in the body; and brownish-black is vata type ama, which may indicate dryness in the body.. ...

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- In their quest to create the super warrior of the future, some military researchers arent focusing on organs like muscles or hearts. Theyre looking at tongues.. By routing signals from helmet-mounted cameras, sonar and other equipment through the tongue to the brain, they hope to give elite soldiers superhuman senses similar to owls, snakes and fish.. Researchers at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition envision their work giving Army Rangers 360-degree unobstructed vision at night and allowing Navy SEALs to sense sonar in their heads while maintaining normal vision underwater - turning sci-fi into reality.. The device, known as "Brain Port," was pioneered more than 30 years ago by Dr. Paul Bach-y-Rita, a University of Wisconsin neuroscientist. Bach-y-Rita began routing images from a camera through electrodes taped to peoples backs and later discovered the tongue was a superior transmitter.. A narrow strip of red plastic connects the Brain Port to the tongue ...

Independent development studio Mojo Bones recently unveiled some screenshots for the debut title, Tongue Tied. The iOS based game involves two troublesome dogs, Mick and Ralph, who managed to become entwined at the tongue. The screenshots reveal a look at some of the gameplay we can come to expect from this upcoming title, where the two canines avoid danger and collect items using their super elastic tongues to their advantage. With well-designed levels and characters bursting with personality, the screenshots make me think that perhaps being tongue tied isnt so bad after all. Check out the rest of the images below or visit Mojo Bones official website for more updates about the progress of what looks to be a rather impressive debut title. ...

My friend (55 yrs old) had an ischiemic stroke in the occipital area of her brain, she also had a severe UTI and has diabetes.. She was intubated and 2 weeks later a tracheostomy. Her tongue is so badly swollen she cannot be removed from the ventilator. We are now 8 weeks on and she has full function of all limbs, she is stuck on the vent, with the trache and no one knows what is wrong. The oral surgeon doesnt feel removing her teeth will solve the problem, he feels the tongue muscle is constantly taut, speech therapy is having no effect. Each day when I visit the tongue is bigger and bigger. They have tried changing all her meds in case they are causing this. She has received 2 units of blood over the 8 weeks for anemia, magic mouth wash, anti-histamines, steriods, Zosyn anti biotic, she also managed to contract ecoli while in ICU, but that appears to be resolved ...

Breastfed infants diagnosed with tongue tie are being unnecessarily treated with deep laser or scissors cuts under both their tongue and upper lip in the first weeks and months of life.
The human body is a unique template, but it shares some commonalities from one individual to the next. For instance, everyone has papillae on their tongue. The majority of individuals will never experience any type of problem from this, but others will. These circular bumps are found throughout the surface of the tongue and they perform a variety of different functions. When they work together, they give you the ability to taste different foods. Below, you will learn about these, as well as the problematic condition known as enlarged papillae. Four Types Of Papillae First, you should take the time to familiarize yourself with the different types of papillae. There are actually four of them and theyll be explored in more depth below. Circumvallate: These are found at the back of the tongue and they form a V. Theyre responsible for identifying bitter tastes. Foliate: These are located on the sides of the tongue. There are two accumulations of foliate papillae. Filiform: These also form a V shape. They

Eating, like breathing and sleeping, seems to be a rather basic biological task. Yet chewing requires a complex interplay between the tongue and jaw, with the tongue positioning food between the teeth and then moving out of the way every time the jaw clamps down to grind it up.. If the act werent coordinated precisely, the unlucky chewer would end up biting more tongue than burrito.. Duke University researchers have used a sophisticated tracing technique in mice to map the underlying brain circuitry that keeps mealtime relatively painless. The study, which appears June 3 in eLife, could lend insight into a variety of human behaviors, from nighttime teeth grinding to smiling or complex vocalizations.. "Chewing is an activity that you can consciously control, but if you stop paying attention these interconnected neurons in the brain actually do it all for you," said Edward Stanek IV, lead study author and graduate student at Duke University School of Medicine. "We were interested in understanding ...
The tongues rough and porous surface is the perfect playground for plaque-causing bacteria in our mouths. If the tongue isnt cleaned regularly and continues to harbour these bacteria, it can serve as a reservoir and continuously re-seed the teeth and gums. Not only do the bacteria coating the tongue contribute to plaque formation, they also can produce a nasty odour, resulting in bad breath.

Some things to avoid saying to a parent of a child with Down Syndrome (from my experience): "he is so lucky to have been given parents like you" (just the usual you are so lucky or blessed to have him will work:) "God gives "special" children to "special" parents" (we are no more special than anyone else even though yes God has ordained Carsten to be in our family just like any other child is ordained to be in theirs) "well thats just the way the chromosomes fell", "they are kind of like dogs, you can yell or hit them and theyll still love you back" (yes, this was actually said to me!:) "is he mild or severe?" (this question is okay however we dont really "label" anymore and the abilities of a person with Down Syndrome can not really be detected until later in life.

I would describe (my) English s as being articulated by the BLADE of the tongue rather than by the tip. The side rims of the tongue are in close contact with the upper teeth or the adjacent gums and roof of the mouth, so that there is no lateral escape. The soft palate is up, so that there is no nasal escape. The important point is that the tongue adopts a posture involving a narrow mid-sagittal GROOVE between the tongue and the alveolar ridge (mid-sagittal = running along the centre of the tongue, from back to front). All the escaping air is channelled along this groove. The effect is to cause turbulence in the airstream, with the auditory consequence of producing the noise of friction as it passes along the groove and strikes the upper teeth. The palatogram you see (taken from the current edition of Cruttenden/ Gimsons Pronunciation of English) shows the groove clearly, as white spots of non-contact. ...
Here is a film that shows that myrmecobius tongue can protrude a distance about equal in length to the skull.

Tongue. The tongue can be rightly regarded as the mirror of your systemic health. It serves as a great diagnostic tool in a variety of conditions.
An apparatus reduces the volume of selected sections of a tongue. The apparatus includes a catheter means. An electrode means is at least partially positioned in an interior of the catheter means. The electrode means is configured to deliver sufficient electromagnetic energy to ablate an interior of the tongue without damaging a hypoglossal nerve of the tongue. An electrode advancement and retraction means is coupled to the electrode means to advance and retract at least a portion of the electrode means in and out of a selected tongue surface. A cabling means is coupled to the electrode means.
1). First of all, The Good Morning Snoring Solution can help if your tongue, jaw, uvula, or mouth structures cause you to snore. Also, positioning the tongue the way it does can really open up your airway.. This makes sense because your tongue is the biggest thing inside your mouth. If you put the biggest thing in your mouth in the right position then things will improve no matter what. A structure as big as your tongue is more involved in the snoring process than most people realize. Thats why Tongue Retaining Mouthpieces Work for Most People.. So, one of the distinctive benefits of using Good Morning Snoring Solution is that this solution successfully takes care of a variety of snoring causes - all in one. Other products often focus on only one cause or another. If your snoring is brought on by multiple factors then a tongue correcting device is definitely the way to go.. 2). No other anti-snoring mouthpiece works on both pushing forward your bottom jaw AND holding your tongue out of the way ...
Soon after entering upon a fast, the tongue coats heavily, and this coat may continue to increase as the fast progresses. This coating will persist during the fast up to a certain point when it begins to spontaneously clean itself up. As long as the body is actively eliminating toxins, the tongue will remain coated, but when this elimination begins to decrease, the tongue will clear up and remain clear. Dr. Hereward Carrington says, "A short while before the return of hunger, this cleansing process of the tongue commences and continues until the tongue is perfectly clean, assuming a beautiful pink-red shade-rarely or never seen in the average man or woman; and the terminus of this cleansing process of the tongue is absolutely coincidental with the return of hunger and of health.". Carrington stated that this coated condition of the tongue indicates the condition of the mucous membrane throughout the alimentary canal since this membrane is so closely interrelated and connected. I would add that ...
