hard palate rigid bony structure covered with mucous membranes that contains transverse ridges of thickend membrane
soft palate parition between mouth and the nasoharanyx that is composed of muscle and covered with mucous membranes.
cheeks formed by buccinator muscle(keeps food between the teeth while chewing) and the buccal pad
tongue keeps food between the teeth during chewing puts pressure on the hard palate to aid in the swallowing used for the food prehension, licking, grooming, lapping up fluid
lingual frenulum anchors underside of the tongue to floor of the mouth
papillae elevation on the sides and the upper surface of the tongue.
gingivae/ gingiva covers the surfaces of the maxilla and the mandible and forms a collar around each tooth very vascular
teeth number vary between species and diet
deciduous teeth functions to cut and grind food and to provide defenserabbits and rodents have only one set of teeth that grow throughout life
carnivoers have brachydont teeth
crown projects above gumline
neck located in gumline
root fixes the tooth in the socket(bony Alveoulus)
enamel encases the crown( hardest substance of body)
Cementum encases the root. Cementum is bonelike
dentin lise under the enamel and cementum and makes up the bulk of the tooth
Alveolar Bone is the bony structure that supports the teeth
pulp cavity inside the dentin and conatins the tooths nerve and blood supply
perodental ligament connects cementum to bone of the alveolus
periodontium peridontal ligament+ the connections in the cementum+ surrounding Alveolaer bone

Salivary glands paratid(next to the parietal bone), mandibular, sublingual, Zygomatic(only in dogs)
saliva serous fluid secreted by the salivary glands that funcions to dissolve or lubicated food, facilitate swallowing, and initiate digestion.
Pharynx passage way for air and food
Esophagus muscular tube from the pharaynx through the diaphragm to the stomach dilates as food passes through
voluntary swallowing passage of food from the mouth to the pharaynx. at this point the larynx is blocked by the epiglottis so food should olgy the right way the tounge helps

sphincter muscle muscles that are ring shaped that close an opening when they contract
cardiac sphincter located between the esophagus and stomach . food enters when it relaxes. sphincters thightens when digestion is taking place. prvents reflux.
pyloric sphincter located between the pylorus and the duodneum. contracts to revent stomach conents from escaping during digestion. relaxes to allow contents to leave stomach and continue to intestines.
layers of intestinal wall (from inner to outer) mucosa, submucosa, muscular externa, serosa
