Mouth is not only important as the beginning of the digestive system, but it also plays a significant role in communication. The tongue is attached to the mandible, the styloid processes of the temporal bones, and the hyoid bone.
Many small salivary glands are housed within the mucous membranes of the mouth and tongue. These minor exocrine glands are constantly secreting saliva, either directly into the oral cavity or indirectly through ducts, even while you sleep. Small amounts of saliva are secreted by the labial glands in the lips. In addition, the buccal glands in the cheeks, palatal glands in the palate, and lingual glands in the tongue help ensure that all areas of the mouth are supplied with adequate saliva.
It is useful to study and learn the parts of the mouth to know the functions so that you can take care of your mouth. You can save and print all of the sheets, just click and you are set!
