Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is a problem affecting some babies with a tight piece of skin between the underside of their tongue and the floor of their mouth (lingual frenulum).
It can sometimes affect the baby's feeding, making it hard for them to attach properly to their mother's breast.
Mouth ulcers are painful round or oval sores that form in the mouth, most often on the inside of the cheeks or lips.
They're usually white, red, yellow or grey in colour and are inflamed (red and swollen) around the edge.
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD)
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is a problem affecting the 'chewing' muscles and the joints between the lower jaw and the base of the skull.
Doctors sometimes refer to the condition as "myofascial pain disorder"
It's normal to occasionally have a dry mouth if you’re dehydrated or feeling nervous, but a persistently dry mouth can be a sign of an underlying problem.
You should see your dentist or GP if you have an unusually dry mouth (known as xerostomia) so they can try to determine the cause.
