Assessment of the Mouth

This assessment of the mouth is being conducted on C. W. a 54-year-old female, A;O x 4 (person, place, time, situation) post patient’s verbalized consent. This patient has no complaints and denies pain currently. Starting with the lips, I observed their color, symmetry, texture, and moisture. Lips are pink and moist, with no indication of dry or cracked lips, associated with dehydration or pale lips possibly associated with anemia. No lesions, moles, inflammation, and are symmetric to face showing no signs of secondary occurrences such as drooping of the face r/t stroke. During this examination, no foul odor due to poor oral hygiene, and no fruity smelling breathe showing signs of hyperglycemia-DKA. Next, examination of the teeth and gums. No missing teeth, patient displays no signs of concerning gum disease such as gingivitis. Tongue is midline, with uvula reactive and in place.
