Your throat

What's in your throat?

HNO Ärztin Dr. Rollin - Your throat

Your mouth can be described as the entrance hall to the throat.

In your mouth you'll find your tongue and teeth. Your mouth is also the exit of the salivary glands which produce spit.

At the back of your throat you can find your tonsils.

Your tonsils detect germs and other microbes within food whilst you are eating. Your tonsils also send out antibodies against the germs which have been built up within your mouth. If you get severe infections of your tonsils then they should be taken out.

But, that`s not all! Deep within the throat you`ll find the larynx - or voice box and within the upper part of the trachea you'll find your vocal chords.

Whilst you are breathing air passes through the throat pipes and produces a tune, when you move your tongue, facial and pharyngeal muscles at the same time these tunes turn into speech!
