Geographic Tongue

Geographic Tongue is a new term for me. This came up in the office today as one of Cerina’s friend’s kids has a spotted tongue. Dr. Urban mentioned that it could be Geographic Tongue, so I had to look it up.

Apparently it’s not a harmful condition, it doesn’t hurt, and the cause is unknown. However, Wiki has this really cool pic of the condition, as well as an article.

To me this pic is so pretty that I found it inspiring. I think this one looks more oceanographic than geographic.

If you have something odd looking on your tongue, or anywhere in your mouth, give us a call. We can help you with that. 703-532-1712
