The Tongue (and its associated “bumps”)

The tongue is entirely made up of muscles and connective tissue covered with two types of mucosa (Mucosa is the pink “skin” in the mouth). The picture on the left reveals part of the lingual tonsil on the lateral (side) surface. The portion shown here is not as large as the lingual tonsil. It curves up and around the following top surface of the tongue too. The underside of the tongue is called the ventral surface. It is smooth and not involved with tasting food. The top area is called the dorsal surface and it is covered with a thin, pink velvet carpet. The velvet surface is made up of tiny hair-like projections called “filiform papillae”.

The Hamulii (singular hamulus) are hard little bumps in the corners of the soft palate just where the soft palate meets the very back of the tuberosities. If you press hard with the tip of the tongue to the inside and behind the gums behind the last top teeth, you may be able to feel them. They represent the tips of little projections from the base of your skull called thehamular processes of the palatine bone.

The Throat

Tonsilloliths (tonsil stones)

People with chronic sinusitis and post nasal drip may develop Tonsilloliths, which are tiny, white, foul smelling stones which lodge in the tonsillar crypts. Sometimes a tonsillolith can be pried out of the surface of the tonsil with a pencil or other small pointed instrument leaving what appears to be a little “hole” but is, in actuality, the tonsillar crypt in which it originally formed.

The border between your mouth and your throat is where the Tonsils are. The palatine tonsils are the tonsils you see at the corners of your throat. In fact, they are only a part of a ring of lymphoid tissue that lines your entire throat lingual tonsilsare the bumpy, pink tissue you see toward the back on both sides if you stick out your tongue really far. They extend to the top (dorsal) surface of the tongue. Although ENT specialists tend to think of the pair as a large, single mass, Lingual tonsils are considered a paired mass of lymph nodes separated by a midline septum.

The gingiva are what most people call the “gums”. The actually anatomy of the gingiva, known commonly as the “gums”, is shown in the image on the right. Because it is firmly attached to the underlying bone, the lighter pink colored gum tissue is called the “attached gingiva”. Its consistency is the same as the gums overlying in the hard palate mentioned above. The unattached gingiva, also known as the Alveolar Mucosa, is the darker pink tissue above and it is not firmly attached to the underlying bone. The mucogingival junction is what the junction between them is called. The small margin of tissue outlined in yellow is called the free or marginal gingiva (it is sometimes called the free gingival margin), and it is the sleeve like portion of the gingiva that is unattached that surrounds the tooth to form the gingival sulcus..
