Learn about the mouth anatomy with the aid of the following mouth diagrams that we have collected from the best resources. The mouth in the diagram is drawn well and is labeled that will help you to understand the structures or parts of the mouth anatomy. The first diagram is provided in the image below, just click to enlarge and download for a quick print from your device.
As you can see in the mouth diagram above, there are many parts that make up the mouth. The mouth consists of two regions, the vestibule and the oral cavity proper. The mouth is lined with a mucous membrane and contains the teeth. When studying anatomy it is useful to be able to describe parts of the body using a diagram. A very simple labeled diagram of the mouth (anterior view of the mouth) is shown below followed by one unlabeled mouth diagram for kids.
This diagram is useful for introductory level courses but doesn’t include all of the parts of the mouth. The mouth includes both soft tissues (such as the tongue, soft palate, and tonsils) and hard structures. The outer structures of the mouth are the cheeks on the outside of the oral cavity and the upper- and lower- lips.
Studying the anatomy of the mouth is important since the mouth is important for speech, eating, and digestion, and can also be used for breathing. All of the diagrams above are printable, and we added a speech pronunciation diagram between the mouth diagrams.
