The mouth can be generally divided into two parts, they are
The vesibulum oris and hte Cavum Oris Proper
The boundries of the proper oral cavity are
Dorsally, the hard palate, Laterally the Dental arches, Ventrally the tongue
Three types of upper lip patterns can be seen, what are they and in which animals
  • Nasolabial Plate (Bo)
  • Rostral Disc (Su)
  • Philtrum (Ca and Small Ru)
The caudal edge of the hard palate is called
The intrapharyngeal opening
The tree muscles of the soft palate are:
  • The Tensor Veli Palatinum,
  •  the Levator Veli Palatinum
  • and the M. palatinum
The three main parts of the tongue are the: The muscosal fold found under the tongue is called the:
  • Root, Body, Apex
  • Frenulum lingua
Two features of the tongue found only in carnivores are
Sulcus mediana (dorsally) and the lyssa (ventrally)

  •  Conical
  • Marginal (only found in newborn suckling Ca and Sus)
What are the three types of gustatory papillae
  • Fungiform,
  • Vallate
  • and Foliate
The Three extrinisic muscles of the tongue are
  • M styloglossus,
  •  hyoglossus
  • and the genioglossus
Describe the blood supply of the tongue
Lingual Artery and the Sublingual artery, which arise from the external carotid. The tongue is drained by the v lingualis and the v. linguofacialis which drain into the arcus hyoideus
What are the three major Salivary Glands and what type of saliva do they produce?
  • Parotid Gland -serous, lobulated, supplied and drained by branches of the maxillary artery and vein
  • Mandibular Gland - mixed secretions, supplied and drained by linguofacial arteries and veins
  •  Sublingual Glands - containing both polystomatic and monostomatic parts, producing mixed secrtions. The monostomatic part is found near the Mandibulary Gland and the Polystomatic part is found near the tongue.
Name interspecies differences regarding the Sublingual Salivary Duct
  • The Eq the monostomatic part is absent
  • The Ru has both ducts but their locations are reversed  
  • In carnivores the sublingual duct shares a common capsule with the mandibulary duct
The sublingual and mandibulary duct open on what strucutre?
Sublingual caruncles
What are the minor Salivary Glands? What are the interspecial differences?
The buccal glands. In Carnivores they become the Zygomatic Ducts

  • Aditus laryngis
  • Aditus oesophagus
What is the name of the space shared by the Nasopharynx and the Oroopharynx?

Upper: M mylohyoideus, geniohyoidieus, stylo, occipito, cerato, hyoidus transversus Lower: my sternohyoideus, sternothroideus, omohyoideus
The layers of the oesphogus are
  • Tunica Mucosa,
  • Tela Submucousa,
  • Tunica Muscularis
  • and the Tunica Adventitia
Describe the passage of the Oesophagus relative to other structures
  • Begins dorsal to the cricoid cart of larynx Passes left of the trachea
  • Runs dorsal to trachea in the mediastinum
  • Continues past the tracheal bifurcatoin and over the base of the heart
  • Continues ventral to the ascending aorta, but wiht a dorsal inclination
  • Enters the abd cavity v
  • ia the oesophageal hiatus of the diaphram
  • Passes over the dorsal border of the liver
  • Joins stomach at cardia
What is the name of the bumps found on the hard palate?
Rugae
What interspecies differences can we find the the tongue of the ox
The Raises Torus linguae, preceeded by the fossa Linguae
What are the borders of the Oropharnx?
From the oral cavity to the epiglottis. The Arcus Palatoglossus demarcates the oral cavity from the oropharynx
What are the borders of the Nasopharynx?
From the caudal nares to the laryngeopharynx. The Acrcus Pharyngeus demarcates the nasopharynx from the laryngopharynx and extends from the soft palate to the larynx
What is the Piriform Recess?
A continuation of the floor of the oropharynx, recesses are either side of the larynx, part of the laryngopharynx. Liquid may get trapped here
What is special about the Valecula Epiglotto?
