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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geographic_tongue

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 FallsChurchSmiles.com
