What Does a Cracked Tongue Mean?

There are several reasons your tongue may appear to have cracks in it!  Is it normal to have cracks on your tongue’s surface? No and yes. A typical tongue doesn’t usually have “big” cracks or deep grooves. But having a fissured tongue isn’t rare enough to say that it’s totally abnormal. Even though there are medical conditions linked to cracks on the tongue, a perfectly healthy person could still have tongue fissures without anything else to worry about.  However, seriously deep or infected cracks on the tongue could be a cause for alarm for your oral health.It might be a fissured tongue, geographic tongue, dry mouth, etc.  Let's talk about the different causes of a "cracked tongue" and treatment!
