Your leg bones are the longest and strongest bones in your body. When you stand or walk, all the weight of your upper body rests on them. Each leg is made up of four bones. The three long bones are your femur, your tibia and your fibula.
The thigh bone is called a femur and not only is it the strongest bone in the body, it is also the longest. Because the femur is so strong, it takes a large force to break or fracture it – usually a car accident or a fall from high up. To fix it properly requires an operation.
The clavicle or the collar bone is the softest and weakest bone in the body.
The clavicle, or collarbone, is also referred to as “beauty bone” because of its prominent body location.
In anatomy, the mandible, lower jaw or jawbone is the largest, strongest and lowest bone in the human facial skeleton. It forms the lower jaw and holds the lower teeth in place. The mandible sits beneath the maxilla. It is the only movable bone of the skull (discounting the ossicles of the middle ear).
Even though teeth and bones seem very similar, they are actually different. Teeth are not bones. Yes, both are white in color and they do indeed store calcium, but that's where their similarities end.
Although the muscles of jaw are the strongest muscles of our body, femur is the strongest bone as it performs the weight bearing function in our body.
If you define strength to mean the ability to exert the most pressure, then the strongest muscle in the human body is the masseter muscle. Of course, you probably call the masseter your jaw muscle. This thick cheek muscle near the back of your jaw opens and closes your mouth when you chew.
The tongue IS NOT the strongest muscle in your body. In fact, it is composed of 8 different muscles. Normal maximum tongue strength in healthy adults falls between 40-80 kilopascals (kPa) with an average of about 63 kPa.
hyoid bone, U-shaped bone situated at the root of the tongue in the front of the neck and between the lower jaw and the largest cartilage of the larynx, or voice box. The primary function of the hyoid bone is to serve as an attachment structure for the tongue and for muscles in the floor of the oral cavity.
The tongue is a muscular organ in the mouth. The tongue is covered with moist, pink tissue called mucosa. Tiny bumps called papillae give the tongue its rough texture. Thousands of taste buds cover the surfaces of the papillae.
A major function of the tongue is the enabling of speech in humans and vocalization in other animals. The human tongue is divided into two parts, an oral part at the front and a pharyngeal part at the back.
Those little pink and white bumps you do see on your tongue are actually called papillae, hair-like projections that taste buds rest atop. Each has an average of six taste buds buried inside its surface tissue. Most of your taste buds cannot be seen with the naked eye.
A bright pink color on the tongue is most often due to a deficiency in iron, folic acid, or vitamin B-12. An allergic reaction to gluten can also cause this. A white tongue is usually a result of smoking, drinking alcohol, poor oral hygiene, or candida infection.
Brushing your tongue can prevent potential problems of the oral cavity such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. Improves your breath: The presence of bacteria on the tongue can lead to halitosis or bad breath. Brushing your tongue on a regular basis can remove such harmful bacteria.
Cyanosis occurs as a result of poor circulation or insufficient oxygenation of the blood. A grey tongue can develop due to intestinal or digestive problems. As bacteria builds up in the mouth due to digestive issues, it can create a greyish coating on the tongue.
Police, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and local health authorities are reporting a rise in calls for help from people who have taken the drug in the Scarborough area. The drug has been found to be laced with Rohypnol, which is causing the user's mouth and tongue to turn blue in colour.
Per the Journal of American Dental Association, Meth mouth is characterized by severe tooth decay and gum disease, which often causes teeth to fall out or break. The teeth of chronic Meth abusers are often blackened, stained, rotting, crumbling, and falling apart.
When dentists say, “open wide,” they can see a treasure trove of information about your overall health. Your mouth can give the dentist clues about your eating habits, oral hygiene, and other behaviors such as smoking and drug use.
White tongue is usually caused when bacteria, debris (like food and sugar) and dead cells get trapped between the papillae on the surface of your tongue. These string-like papillae then grow large and swell up, sometimes becoming inflamed. This creates the white patch you see on your tongue.
