Catalog Description:
Untitled document
The students will study the anatomy of the head, neck and oral cavity, including anatomical nomenclature; they will develop an understanding of embryologic development and developmental defects with a focus on oral hard and soft tissues. This course will emphasize the structure and function of the oral cavity with a focus on normal anatomy and their structures, identification of landmarks, including musculature, skeletal system, nervous system and vasculature, related to the administration of local anesthesia. The course will also cover source and spread of dental infection in relation to the fascial spaces in the lymphatic system.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:

COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1. Integrate an understanding of the development, structures, systems and anatomy of the head and neck into clinical dental hygiene practice.
2. Differentiate between the normal and abnormal/pathologic when conducting a physical examination of the patient's head and neck structures.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Describe the process of embryologic and prenatal development of the orofacial structures and the clinical considerations due to developmental disturbances within these periods.
2. Discuss the stages of tooth development including eruption and exfoliation patterns and the clinical considerations due to developmental disturbances.
3. Discuss the histological features of basic tissues: epithelium, connective tissue, nerve tissue, and muscle tissue.
4. Discuss the histological features, development, and properties of the enamel, dentin, pulp, cementum, alveolar process, and periodontal ligament.
5. Identify the types of oral mucosa, discuss the regional differences, and integrate this knowledge into patient care.
6. Identify and describe the skeletal, lymphatic, vascular, nervous, and the muscular systems associated with the head and neck region.
7. Identify and describe the function of the glands associated with the head and neck.
8. Identify the fasciae and spaces in the head and neck.
9. Describe the anatomy, movements and associated muscles and ligaments of the temporomandibular joint.
10. Accurately identify and use the anatomical landmarks needed for successful local anesthesia.
11. Apply knowledge of head and neck structures to extraoral and intraoral examination in clinical dental hygiene.
