The mouth, buccal cavity, or oral cavity is the first portion of the Alimentary canal that receives food and begins digestion by mechanically breaking up Vertebrates are members of the Subphylum Vertebrata, Chordates with backbones or spinal columns The grouping sometimes includes It separates the oral cavity from the nasal cavity. The mouth, buccal cavity, or oral cavity is the first portion of the Alimentary canal that receives food and begins digestion by mechanically breaking up The nasal cavity (or nasal fossa) is a large air-filled space above and behind the nose in the middle of the face The palate is divided into two parts, the anterior bony hard palate, and the posterior fleshy soft palate or velum. The hard palate is a thin horizontal bony plate of the Skull, located in the roof of the mouth The soft palate (or velum, or muscular palate) is the soft tissue constituting the back of the roof of the Mouth. The maxillary nerve branch of the trigeminal nerve (V) supplies sensory innervation to the palate. The maxillary nerve (V2 is one of the three branches of the trigeminal nerve, the fifth Cranial nerve. The trigeminal nerve (the fifth Cranial nerve, also called the fifth nerve or simply V) is responsible for sensation in the face Cutaneous innervation refers to the area of the Skin which is supplied by a specific Nerve, that is by a Cutaneous nerve.
