Understanding mouth related symptoms and features
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
The mouth is a part of the GI tract of the digestive system of the body, a system which includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus.The digestive system is what makes it possible for the body to eat and digest essential nutrients from food.
Sometimes symptoms affecting the mouth can be seen with the eye. Although diagnosing a mouth related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.
Symptoms relating to the mouth may affect its structure, shape and/ or function. Some features will affect just the appearance of the mouth while others may affect its ability to function properly as a part of the digestive system.
What is a Narrow Mouth?
A narrow mouth is one that is smaller than the average. If the distance between the two ends of the mouth measures more than 2 SD below the mean, the mouth is considered to be narrow.
In many cases the smaller size of a narrow mouth will be obvious even without a measurement.
What should I do next?
In some instances a narrow mouth may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
