What is Glossitis?
Glossitis is a condition which causes the tongue to change its color, swell in size and develop a smooth appearance on its surface. Such an inflammation prevents an individual from speaking, chewing and swallowing comfortably. It also can become the reason for the disappearance of papillae, the small bumps on the tongue's surface. They play an important role in tasting the food, as they contain numerous tiny sensors.
When the condition is serious, it may have serious consequences and change the way one eats or speaks for good. Proper and early treatment is the best way to avoid such unpleasant results.
