The Facial and Oral Anatomy Study Brief is intended as a quick comprehensive reference for anatomy, medical and nursing students as well as individuals interested in advanced science. It presents a short introduction to general anatomy terms related to body position and movement, bone structure, body components and planes. This Study Brief is intended as a concentrated reference guide, focusing on specialized terminologies for discrete parts of thee skeletal anatomy of the human head. It covers bone structures of the skull, face, mandible, and cranial vault. Functions of the muscles of mastication, depressor muscles of the mandible, and muscles of facial expression are outlined with illustrations. Intraoral soft tissue anatomy is a key topic with detailed sections revealing the oral mucous membrane, upper jaw (maxillae), lower jaw and salivary glands. Functions of the temporomandibular joint and basic mandibular movements are discussed. This Study Brief also features an overview of dental anatomy, specifying the terms for types of teeth and their locations and identifying the parts of a tooth.
