Reconstructive Surgery of the Oral Cavity

  • R. M. Tiwari
Part of the Developments in Oncology book series (DION, volume 20)


The oral cavity has, anatomically speaking, two separate compartments, namely, the vestibule and the oral cavity proper. This division is provided by the dental arches of the upper and lower jaws. The vestibule is the space that lies between the dental arcade, on the one hand, and the lips, on the other, and communicates with the oral cavity proper in the presence of full dentition through the retromolar fossa [1]. The oral cavity proper consists of the floor of the mouth and the mobile anterior two-thirds of the tongue below and the hard and soft palate above. The palatoglossal arches behind form the boundary between the oral cavity and the oropharynx. It functions as a receptor organ for food and plays a vital role in mastication and articulation. Through the tongue and the palate it subserves the function of taste. Movements of the lips and the cheeks also participate in facial expression. In complete nasal obstruction and in case of air hunger, the oral cavity serves also as a pathway for respiration.
