Flashcards in Mandibular Division Deck (42)
Where does the Mandibular division exit the cranial vault?
Where do the large sensory root and the small motor root of the mandibular division combine?
The infratemporal fossa
What kind of fibers does the mandibular division carry?
both motor and sensory
The mandibular division of the Trigeminal nerve carries sensory information from the skin over the mandible, posterior cheek and what other skin?
over the posterior temple
Other than skin, the mandibular division carries sensation from where?
mucosa of the lower oral cavity and cheeks
how many muscles does the mandibular division supply motor innervation?
16 (8 on each side)
List the muscles innervated by the mandibular division.
Muscles of mastication (masseter, temporalis, medial pterygoid and lateral pterygoid), Tensor Veli Palatine, Tensor Tympani, Mylohyoid, and the Anterior Belly of Digastric
Which two branches are given off in the infratemporal fossa?
recurrent meningeal and medial pterygoid nerve
What is the other name for the recurrent meningeal nerve?
Where does the recurrent meningeal branch reenter the cranium?
What carries sensory info from the dura of the middle cranial fossa?
recurrent meningeal branch
What all is innervated by the recurrent meningeal branch of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve?
dura from the middle cranial fossa, anterior cranial fossa, and calvarium (skull cap dura)
What nerve is the motor supply for the medial pterygoid muscle?
medial pterygoid nerve
Some fibers from the medial pterygoid nerve pass through a ganglion. What is its name?
What nerve supplies the tensor veli palatine and tensor tympani muscles?
medial pterygoid nerve of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve.
Which division of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve is predominately motor?

What nerve from the anterior division of the mandibular division gives off an anterior and posterior branch that supply the temporalis muscle?
deep temporal nerve
What nerve innervates the lateral pterygoid muscle?
lateral pterygoid nerve
what is the major sensory branch of the anterior division of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve?
What nerve conveys sensation from the buccal gingivae of the molars, and the skin and mucosal surfaced of the cheek?
What are the nerves given off of the posterior division of the mandibular division?
(PAIL) Posterior division has Auriculotemporal, Inferior alveolar, Lingual
What kind of information is carried by the auriculotemporal nerve?
What nerve passes through the parotid gland, posterior to the TMJ, and into the infratemporal fossa?
