On our tongue diagnosis page you will see under “swollen” body shape:
swollen deficiency

  • pale & wet - yang def
  • teethmarks & pale = qi def or excess fluids
  • dark red = excess heat usually ht/sp
  • so generally this mean qi deficiency and/or excess fluids. To better understand qi deficiency in basic terms I would recommend you start by reading “My Spleen is What?

That will give you a general idea of how the “spleen” in Chinese terms is influenced by diet, lifestyle, sleep, etc. Generally better sleep, less strain, and less carbs/sugar is what most people will need to do.

There are other ways for the marks to be there, however, and they are only one indicator of many a practitioner would take into consideration when designing a treatment protocol and/or providing recommendations.

There is no way to tell the presence of cancer from a single diagnostic tool in Chinese Medicine. Teethmarks are extremely common on people due to fast paced lifestyles, poor diets and other factors.
