The thin glass wall which allows heat energy to be conducted easily.

The glass around the bulb in a clinical thermometer (the conventional one) is thin because glass is not a good conductor of heat. The clinician and the patient don't want to wait half an hour to get a good temperature reading. By using the thinner glass, the transfer of heat into the thermometer's fluid will be more rapid than it would with an instrument with thicker glass.

The thin glass help avoid shattering due to different expansion rate of different part of the glass wall.

The tastes differ. An oral thermometer has a longer slender end that's inserted (into the mouth), compared to a rectal thermometer that has a short bulbous end inserted (into the rectum). The bulb reduces the chance of tearing the rectal wall, especially in infants. Some digital models have a setting for rectal vs. oral on the unit. The rectal temperature is known to be a little warmer and more accurate to body temperature. If you still have a glass and mercury thermometer, be aware that mercury is a deadly toxin, and consider replacing the thermometer with a digital model.
