Flashcards in Palate Deck (28):
1

What forms the hard palate?

Palatine process of maxillae, horizontal processes of palatine bones

2

What is midline immediately posterior to the incisors?

Incisive fossa

3

Where are the greate and lesser palatine foramina found?

Inferior margin of the perpendicular palatine bone

4

What forms ridges in the muscosa of the anterior hard palate?

Transverse palatine folds (rugae)

5

Found deep to the mucosa in both the hard palate and oral portion of the soft palate

Musus-secreting palatine glands

6

Naming of the mucus on the superior surface of the soft palate

nasal mucosa

7

Naming of the mucus on the inferior surface of the soft palate

Oral mucosa

8

What is the soft palate conposed of?

Connective tissue and muscle covered in mucosa

9

Attaches to the posterior margin of the hard palate and forms the connective tissue sheet of the soft palate

Palatine aponeurosis

10

What makes up the bulk of the soft palate?

skeletal muscle

11

Where are the palating tonsils located?

Between the palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal arches

12

During swalloing, how is food prevented from entering the nasopharynx?

Soft palate elevates against the posterior wall of the pharynx

13

Tendon of the tensor veli palatini

passes inferiorly around hamulus of the medial pterygoid plate and blends with the palatine aponeruosis

14

2 muscles that attach to the auditory tube

Tensor veli palatini, levator veli palatini

15

Elevates the soft palate

Levator veli palatini

16

Pulls the tingue and soft palate toward each other during swallowing

Palatoglossus

17

Draws the pharynx superiorly/anteriorly/medially during swallowing

Palatopharyngeus

18

Shortens the uvula

Musculus uvulae

19

What muscle is NOT innervated by the motor nerve of vagus nerve?

Tensor veli palatini

20

What innervates the tensor veli palatini?

CNV3

21

What innervates the sensory of the palate?

Branches of V2 via pterygopalatine

22

Preganglionic parasympathetic innervation of pterygopalatine ganglion

Facial nerve via greater petrosal nerve

23

Postganglion parasympathetic innervation of pterygopalatine ganglion

To mucosa for secretion

24

Postganglion sympathetic via superior cervical ganglion to palate

Vasomotor to blood vessels of palate

25

Blood supply of palate origin

3rd division of maxillary artery

26

Portion of facial artery that supplies the palate

Ascending palatine branch

27

Lymph from left side of head/neck drains into what?

Thoracic duct

28

Lymph from right side of head/neck drains into what?

Joins right upper limb lymph via right jugular lymphatic trunk, then into the junction of right internal jugular vein/right subclavian vein
