Musculature of head

  1. 1. THE MUSCULATURE OF THE HEAD By: Dr. Pamela Josefina T. Fabie
  2. 2. MUSCLES OF FACIAL EXPRESSION Related mainly to the orbital margins and eyelids, the external nose and nostrils, the cheeks and mouth, the pinna, scalp and cervical skin.COMMON CHARACTERISTICS:1) All are inserted into the skin of the face2) All are supplied by the muscular branches of the facial nerve3) All produce facial expression
  3. 3. The craniofacial ,sucles receive theor innervatons from thebraches of the FACIAL NERVE. They are grouped as: 1. Epicranial 2. Circumorbitaland Palpebral 3. Nasal 4. Buccolabial
  4. 4. 1. OCCIPITOFRONATALIS – covers the dome of the skull
  5. 5. 1. Frontalis musclesThe muscle that covers the forehead. It has no bony attachment. ORIGIN: anterior part of the galea aponeurotica INSERTION: skin on the lower part of the forehead ACTION: produce transverse wrinkles on the forehead as in surprise. It raises the eyebrows.
  6. 6. 2. Occipitalis musclesA short and narrow muscle that arises from the occipital bone ORIGIN: lateral 2/3 of the superior nuchal line INSERTION: posterior part of the galea aponeurotica ACTION: draw the galea aponeurotica backwards to fix and tense it.
  7. 7. 2. TEMPOROPARIETALIS– variablydeveloped sheet of muscle that lies between the frontal partsof the occipitofrontalis and anterior and superior auricular muscles Temporoparietalis
  9. 9. A. PALPEBRAL PORTIONORIGIN: medial palpebralligament and adjacent part ofthe maxillaINSERTION: outer surface ofthe lateral palpebral marginACTION: close the eyelids asin sleeping and winkling
  10. 10. B. ORBITAL PORTIONORIGIN: medial palpebral ligament,frontal bone and maxillaINSERTION: medial palpebral ligament (no lateral attachment)ACTION: helps close the eyelids and draw lateral part of lidsmedially. They are responsible for the “crow’s feet” usuallyseen at the lateral angles of the eye
  11. 11. C. LACRIMAL PORTION - aka HOMER’S MUSCLE or tensor tarsiORIGIN: posterior lacrimalcrestINSERTION: tarsal plate TENSOR TARSIACTION: compress lacrimalsac, forcing the tears intothe nasal cavity through thenaso-lacrimal duct
  12. 12. 2. CORRUGATOR SUPERCILLI – - deep muscle blending with the upper portion of the orbicularis muscle ORIGIN: fronto-nasal suture and frontal bone, and medial part of the supercilliary arch INSERTION: skin on the medial half of the eyebrow ACTION: throw the skin of forehead into folds as in frowning
  13. 13. 3. LEVATOR PALPEBRAESUPERIORISORIGIN: lesser wing of thesphenoid bone just above theoptic foramenINSERTION: skin of the uppereyelid as well as the superiortarsal plateACTION: elevates the uppereyelid thereby opening the eyes
  14. 14. A. PROCERUS – small muscle overlying the basal bone (frowning) ORIGIN: nasal bone and lateral nasal cartilage INSERTION: skin at the root of the nose ACTION: compress the nostril and depress the cartilage of nose
  15. 15. B. NASALIS – aka COMPRESSOR NARES or PARS TRANSVERSUSORIGIN: side of the bonyaperture of the nose and theupper end of the canineeminence of maxillaINSERTION: the aponeurosis ofthe cartilaginous part of thenoseACTION: compress the nostrilsa d depress the cartilage of thenose
  16. 16. C. DILATOR NARESORIGIN: nasal notch of themaxilla and the nasolabialgrooveINSERTION: inferior border ofthe ala of the noseACTION: dilate the nostrils
  17. 17. D. DEPRESSOR SEPTI NASI ORIGIN: medial fiber of the dilator naris muscle INSERTION: mobile part of the nasal septum ACTION: draw the septum downwards and to narrow the nostril
  18. 18. 1. ELEVATORS, RETRACTORS and EVERTORS OF THE UPPER LIP  Levator labii superioris alaque nasi  Levator labii superioris  Zygomaticus major and minor  Levator anguli oris  Risorius
  19. 19. A. LEVATOR LABIISUPRIORIS ALAQUE NASIORIGIN: frontal nasal processINSERTION: one slip goes toala of the nose while the othergoes to the orbicularis orisACTION: elevate the ala of thenose and the upper lip
  20. 20. B. LEVATOR LABII SUPRIORISORIGIN: infraorbitalhead, zygomatic head andangular headINSERTION: upper lipACTION: elevate lateral par ofupper lip. Contraction ofinfraorbital head givesexpression of sadness.Contraction of infraorbital headgives expression of disdain ordoubt
  21. 21. C. ZYGOMATICUS MAJOR - Smiling muscle or muscle of happinessORIGIN: zygomatic bone andarchINSERTION: angle of themouthACTION: elevate or draw angleof the mouth up and back as inlaughing or smiling
  22. 22. D. ZYGOMATICUS MINOR - gives the expression of pain or sorrow ORIGIN: zygomatic bone, medial to zygomatic major INSERTION: skin on the nasolabial groove ACTION: deepen the nasolabial groove as in sorrow
  23. 23. E. LEVATOR ANGULI ORIS OR CANINUSORIGIN: maxilla below theinfraorbital foramen and thecanine fossa of maxillaINSERTION: fibers are directeddownward, to be inserted to theangle of the mouthACTION: elevate angle of themouth (also a muscle ofhappiness)
  24. 24. F. RISORIUS -lies horizontally across thecheek. Gives the expression of irony orplasticity ORIGIN: superficial fascia over the parotid INSERTION: skin and mucosa of the angle of the mouth ACTION: draw the angle of the mouth laterally, giving an expression of strain and stress
  25. 25. 2. DEPRESSORS, RETRACTORS and EVERTORS OFTHE LOWER LIP  Depressor labii inferioris  Depressor anguli oris  mentalis
  26. 26. A. DEPRESSOR LABIIINFERIORS - a quadrilateral muscle; givesthe expression of frowning ORIGIN: base of the mandible, between mental protuberance and mental foramen INSERTION: skin and mucosa of the lower lip ACTION: draw the lower lip downward, as in ‘irony”
  27. 27. B. DEPRESSOR ANGULIORIS or TRIANGULARIS - gives the expression of sadness ORIGIN: oblique line of mandible INSERTION: angle of the mouth ACTION: depress the angle of the mouth
  28. 28. C. MENTALIS MUSCLEORIGIN: mandible below thelower incisor teeth and beneathoral mucosaINSERTION: skin of chinACTION: elevate chin. It alsocauses trembling of the chin. Itwrinkles the skin of the chin asin disdain or doubt.
  29. 29. 3. A COMPOUND SPHINCTER  Orbicularis oris  Accessory muscles to the orbicularis oris incisivus superior and incisivus inferior
  30. 30. ORBICULARIS MUSCLE - muscle that forms thesphincter around the mouthORIGIN: buccinator muscleINSERTION: upper lip- angle ofthe mouth; lower lip - mandibleACTION: close the mouth invarious ways such asclosing, pressing againstteeth, twisting and protruding
  31. 31. ORIGIN: outer surface ofalveolar process of maxilla andmandible in the region of themolar teeth andpterygomandibular ligamentINSERTION: angle of the mouthblending with the orbicularisorisACTION: press the cheekagainst the teeth while chewing.Useful inmastication, whistling, sucking
  32. 32. ORIGIN: skin and superficialfascia of the pectoral anddeltoid regionsINSERTION: directed upwardand forward to be inserted intothe lower border of themandibleACTION: retract and depressthe angle of the mouth;Depress the mandible.
