Learning objectives

1st LEARNING ENPOINT: the student is expected to know the structures stomatognathic apparatus in its macro- and microscopic aspects, in a clinical perspective.
2nd LEARNING ENPOINT; the student is expected to be able to describe shape, position, relationship, structure vascularization and innervation of the different organs of the stomatognathic apparatus. The student is supposed to be able to identify individual morphological diversities providing a methodological approach preparatory to the clinical reasoning
3rd LEARNING ENPOINT: the student is expected to be able to develop an anatomical-based thinking and to possess autonomous judgement on the correlation between structure and function.
4th LEARNING ENPOINT: the student is expected to master an anatomical language.

Course unit content

Classes will be focused on craniofacial development, anatomy of the stomatognatic apparatus and of the head
and neck, with an emphasis on the topographic description of anatomical regions of special clinical and surgical interest.

Full programme

Cranio-facial development. Dental arches, gingiva, lips, tongue and oral cavity: situation, vessels and nerve. Teeth: classification and identification, morphology and function. Odontogenesis. Paraodontal tissues. Salivatory glands: situation, vessels and nerve. Tongue. Masticatory muscles, temporomadibular joint. Topographic anatomy of the following regions: temporal and infratemporal region,
fossa, orbital region, nasal region, mental region, buccal region, oral
cavity, oropharynx space, parotid and submandibular region, regions of
the neck (neck triangles), supra and infrahyoid neck spaces. Fascia of the neck.

Teaching methods

Interactive class lectures. Power point slide will be projected and uploaded on “Elly” platform (https://elly2023.medicina.unipr.it). Slides will be available for Dental Students only (“5027 - ODONTOIATRIA E PROTESI DENTARIA”). Atlas, anatomical models and the laboratory of virtual interactive dissection will be also available.
Atlas, anatomical models and the laboratory of virtual interactive dissection will be also available. Anatomical rooms with anatomical models will be available for individual learning

Assessment methods and criteria

e achievement of the above described learning objective will be verified by an oral exam. Communicative skills will be assessed too. The result will be announced immediately after.
Students with DSA/BSE must contact the University's Reception and Inclusion Centre (CAI) in advance and follow the CAI's instructions for any requests for personalised examinations (https://www.cai.unipr.it/ ).
