The mouth plays an important role in drinking, eating, breathing, and speaking. The mouth also helps in chewing and biting food. It is actually a hollow cavity formed by the space between the lips, cheeks, tongue, hard and soft palates and the throat. It includes both soft tissues (such as the tongue, soft palate and tonsils) and hard structures (including the teeth and jaw bones into which the teeth are set).
