What are the 7 Facial Landmarks?
What is the Nasal Tip?
The anterior-most point of the nose.
What is the Alar Base?
The rounded tissue forming the base of the nose, extending from the alar rim to the columella.
What is the Alar Rim?
The rounded tissue forming the outer portion of the nose, running from the tip to the alar base.
What is the Columella?
The column of tissue separating the nostrils.
What are the Philtral Ridges?
The columns of tissue on either side of the philtrum.
What is the Philtrum?
The vertical, slight depression of tissue running from the columella to the lips.
What is the Cupid's Bow?
The outer edge of the upper lip--typically in the shape of a fancy bow (as in a bow-and-arrow bow, not as in a gift-wrap bow or a hair-bow)
What is the Superior Labial Frenulum?
The frenulum that connects the upper lip to the gum

What are the Palatine Folds?
Irregular ridges in the mucous membrane on the anterior portion of the roof of the hard palate just behind the teeth
What is the Glossopalatine Arch?
Folds of mucous membrane passing from the Soft Palate to the side of the Tongue
Encloses the Palatoglossus Muscle
What is the Pharyngopalatine Arch?

Under the tone
What are the Submandibular Salivary Ducts?
Under the tongue
What are the Gingivae?
What is the Nasal Septum?
The ridge that separates the right and left nostrils
What are the three parts of the Nasal Septum?
Perpendicular plate of ethmoidal bone
What is the Perpendicular Plate of Ethmoidal Bone?
Thin vertical bone that forms the superior portion of the Nasal Septum
What is the Septal Cartilage?
Thin cartilage plate that forms the inferior portion of the Nasal Septum
What is the Vomer?
Thin bone that forms the medial portion of the Nasal Septum

What is the Incisive Foreman?
funnel-shaped opening in hard palate immediately behind the incisor teeth where blood vessels and nerves pass
What is the Premaxillae?
Area of the hard palate just behind the front teeth
