The mouth leads to the oral cavity. The oral cavity has teeth, gums and the following parts
The tongue is a freely movable muscular organ present in the oral cavity. It aids in taste, speech, chewing and swallowing. The upper surface of the tongue has projections called papillae which bear taste buds.
The roof of the mouth is formed by the palate. The bony part of the palate is called hard palate and behind the hard palate is the soft palate.
The mouth/oral cavity is bound by the upper and the lower lip and the inner side is the cheek. The oral cavity is lined by a specialized layer of the skin called mucosa.
