Oral Mucosa

We just learned about the Gingiva.

Another part of the mouth is the Oral Mucosa.

This is a fancy way of saying the wet skin inside your mouth.
The oral mucosa is the skin on the inside of your cheeks, your gums, the skin on the roof of your mouth, on your tongue, under your tongue and the skin inside your lips.

(from: wikipedia - oral mucosa)
