Anatomy of the Head and Neck

View an Excerpt

The dental professional must have a thorough knowledge of head and neck anatomy when performing patient examination procedures, both extraoral and intraoral. Knowledge of normal anatomy will help determine whether any abnormalities or lesions exist and possibly indicate the etiology and amount of involvement. This knowledge will also provide a basis for the description of the lesion and its location for record-keeping purposes.

Head and neck anatomy is also useful when performing dental radiology procedures. Landmarks are used by the dental professional in the placement of the films, and knowledge of anatomy is important in the mounting and analysis of the films.

A patient may also present features of a temporomandibular joint disorder. A dental professional must have knowledge of the normal anatomy of the joint in order to understand the various disorders associated with it.
