The modiolus labii structure and morphology in the adult

The modiolus labii structure and morphology in the adult

Anales de la Facultad de Odontologia (Universidad de la Re ica Uruguay) 21(24): 31-40

A dissection of ten different hemifacial preparations (all of them male adult persons) was made in order to get a detailed description of the morphology and structure of the modiolus. It thickness was about 5.1 mm, and its diameter about 17.8 mm. It is formed by seven muscles: zigomaticus major, levator anguli oris, depressor anguli oris, platysma, risorius, orbicularis oris and buccinator.
