The mouth breaks down food mechanically, provides enzymes in saliva that start the process of carbohydrate digestion, and moistens food. In addition, taste buds give information about the quality of the food.
Initial steps of digestion occur in the oral cavity (mouth.)

The oral cavity is less formally known as the mouth. It's primary function is to bite, chew, and swallow food. It is also involved in speaking and can be used for breathing.The oral cavity as its name indicates its a cavity = space, the most important function of it is that it provides space for mechanical digestion of food. Providing saliva for easier digestion, bears a tongue which helps us in moving food and tasting it.Mechanical (chewing) and chemical (Starch digestion by amylase) digestion of food.So this is what I got from my physiology book:The mouth receives food and begins digestion by mechanically reducing the size of solid particles and mixing them with saliva. The lining of the mouth as well as the saliva glands provide lubrication which aide in speech, swallowing, and the digestion of food.
