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

The modiolus labii structure and morphology in the adult

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.
