The root of a tooth is covered by ____________.
The crown of the tooth is covered by __________.
________ are blade-shaped teeth that function in cutting or clipping.
__________ are pointed teeth that are adapted for tearing and slashing.
__________ are teeth with flattened crowns and prominent ridges that are adapted for crushing and grinding.
_______ are also known as caninies.
Functions of the teeth include:
- chew food
- break down food
The first teeth to appear are the _______ teeth.

The espohagus has several variations from the standard plan of the gut tube.  These include epithelium of mucosa is stratitied __________, and _____________ may be striated muscle.
squamous; muscularis externa
During deglutition, the soft palate ______, the laryne _____, the epiglottis ________, and the lower esophageal sphincter __________.
evalates; elevates; closes; opens
What are the phases of deglutition?
1. Bucca phase
2. pharngeal phase
3. esophagneal
The ________ phase begins with compression of the bolus against the hard palate; retraction of the tongue then forces the bolus into the oropharynx and assists in the elevation of the soft palate, thereby sealing off the nasopharynx; is strictly voluntary.
The _________ phase begins when tactile receptors on the palatal arches and uvula are stimulated; In response, motor commands from the swallowing center in the medulla oblongata then direct a coordinated pattern of muscle contraction in the pharyngeal muscles, while the palatal muscles elevate the uvula and soft palate to block the entrance of the nasophaynx.
The _________ phase of swallowing begins as the contracitons of pharyngeal muscles forces the bolus through the entrance to the espohagus; once in the espohagus, the bolus is pushed townard the stomachby peristaltic waves.
Muscles known as the pharyngeal constrictors function in _______.
swallowing (deglutition)
The ________________ supports most of the small intestine and provides stability and limited movement.
mesentery proper
The ___________ provides access for blood vessels entering and leaving the liver?
lessor omentum
The ___________ contains adipose tissue and provides padding for the anterior and lateral portions of the abdomen.
greater omentum
The serous membrane that lines the peritoneal cavity secretes ________ fluid, which decrease friction and lubricates the caviry.  It also prevents irritation.

The regions of the stomach are:
- fundus
- cardia

The ________ of the stomach is the portion of the stomach that is superior to the junction btween the stomach and the esphagus; contacts the inferior, posterior suface of the diaphragm.
The ________ of the stomach is the superior, medial portion of the stomach within 3 cm. of the junction between the stomach and the esophagus; contains abundant mucus glands whose secretions coat the connection with the espohagus and help protect that tube from the acid and enzymes of the stomach.
The ______ of the stomach is the area of stomach between the fundus and the curve of the J; it is the largest region of the stomach; functions in mixing bowl for ingested food and secretions produced in the stomach.
The ______ of the stomach forms the sharp curve of the J; as mixing movements accur during digestion, it frequently changes shape.
The _______ of the stomach connects to the esophagus.
The ___________ is a fatty sheet that hangsl ike an apron over the abdominal viscera.
greater omentum
The portion of the stomach that is superior to the junction between the stomach and the espohagus is the _____________.
The part of the stomach that functions as a mixing chamber for food and secretions is the _________.
The region of the stomach that empties into the duodenum is the ________.
A feature of the digestive epithelium that assists expansion of the stomach is the presence of ________.
The prominent ridges in the lining of the empty stomach are called ________.
The ________ mechanically digests ingested food.
After food and gastic juices combine, the gastric contents are referred to as _________.
Perietal cells secrete _________.
intrinsic factor
Chief cells secrete _________.

Gastric pits are openings into ____________.
gastric glands
The enzyme pepsin digests _________.
An enzyme secreted by the gastric mucosa of a newborn that assists in the digestion of milk proteins is __________.
The lining of the stomach has simple _______ epithelium, is covered by thick alkaline _________, contains gastric pits, and is constantly being replaced.
columnar; mucus layer
Which of the following would be greater?

- the pH of the blood in gastric veins during digestion of a large meal
- the pH of the blood in gastric veins following a 24 hr. fast
- the pH of the blood in the gastric veins could be greater after a meal or after a fast; there is not enough info. to predict
- the pH in the gastric veins is constant because of buffering.
the pH of the blood in gastric veins during digestion of a large meal
