Our mouth is a highly sensitive area which contain vessels, nerves and glands. When liver tissue gets fibrosis, blood circulation in the mouth will be affected. Patients who suffer from chronic hepatitis for years might lost the sharpness in the mouth and lips or colour turns dark. If patients get these symptoms, it might means the liver is developing cirrhosis.
