3 What happen inside our mouth? Mechanical digestionFood is cut up by the teeth and the pieces are mixed with the saliva by the tongue producing bolus.This cutting and mixing is called mastication (chewing)
4 Types of Tooth Adults humans typically have 32 teeth Humans have 4 types of teeth:Incisors-cutting and bitingCanine-holding and cuttingPremolars-chewing and crushingMolars-chewing and crushing
5 Tooth Structure Enamel: hardest tissue made of calcium salts. Dentine: forms the major part of the tooth. Contains a series of fine canals which extend to the pulp cavity.Pulp cavity: Contains tooth producing cells, blood vessels, nerve endings.Gum: Covers the junction between enamel and cement.Cement: helps anchor the tooth to the jaw.Periodontal membrane: Anchors the cement to jawbone. The tooth is held firmly but not rigidly.
6 Dental Health Eating food with a low sugar content. Regular and effective brushing of teeth (at least twice a day).Finishing a meal with a crisp vegetable or fruit followed by rinsing with water.
8 Chemical Digestion Digestive Enzymes Carbohydrate digestion begins in the mouth.Protein digestion begins in the stomach.Digestion of food molecules is completed in the small intestine.

10 AbsorptionAbsorption is a process where digested food molecules are transported across the lining of the gut into the blood.Most absorption happens from the ileum.The surface of the ileum is highly folded into villi.

12 The liver and assimilation Digested food is absorbed into the bloodstream.The liver sorts out digested food molecules and make sure that the other tissues of the body receive what they need.The process of moving food molecules into the cells where they are used is called assimilation.
