Study more about the anatomy of our oral cavity using this collection of 101 Diagrams resources containing mouth diagrams. The detailed anatomy of our mouth is available in the following printable diagrams of oral cavity below.
Using this printable mouth diagram, you’ll know more about the parts that make up our mouth. The mouth structures includes the lips, cheeks, palate (roof of the mouth), floor of the mouth and the part of the tongue in the mouth (oral tongue). There are many organs in the mouth such as the teeth, tongue, and the ducts of the salivary glands. These organs work together to aid in the ingestion and digestion of food. Just like what is shown in the following mouth diagram.
A mucous membrane lines and protects the inside of the mouth. The structures in the oral cavity play an important role in speech, taste and the first steps of digestion. Food in the mouth is swallowed into the oropharynx and passed on to the esophagus and the rest of the gastrointestinal tract. The tongue is attached to the mandible, the styloid processes of the temporal bones, and the hyoid bone.
