In our mouth we can find the taste buds, the tongue and the teeth. Let's study them!



Our tongue is covered with small bumps called taste buds. We use the taste buds to distinguish flavours. There are 4 different flavours. Do you remember them? They are salty, sweet, sour and bitter.



We use our tongue to taste (with our taste buds) and to move the food that is in our mouth (and, of course, to talk!!).

We use our teeth to cut and chew all the food we eat. Our teeth are covered with a hard shell called enamel. The enamel is made of calcium and other minerals.

To keep your teeth healthy and strong, you must follow some rules:

  1. You must clean your teeth and gums after every meal. If you don't clean your teeth properly, they will decay.

  2. You must stop eating sweets and chocolate (or your teeth will decay...).

  3. You must drink milk to get enough calcium for your teeth.

  4. You must visit your dentist regularly.

If you follow these simple rules, your teeth will be strong and healthy forever!!



You are going to watch a couple of videos to understand better all this information.

The first video is an animation that explains what happen in your mouth when you eat food.




On the second video you are going to watch (using X-rays) a men eating and drinking food. It's amazing!!
