Nerve Supply to the Face
Nerve Supply in Face


The face is a unique part of the body with its indi- vidual anatomical characteristics. While the den- tal clinician is usually focused on the oral cavity, the physical examination should involve close attention to the neurosensory status of the facial skin.

Furthermore, skin sensitivity should be as- sessed pre- and postoperatively in conjunction with dental interventions. The face can be divided into several functional units, such as the eyes, nose, mouth/lips, and cheeks.
