Oral Mucosa& Tissue

Keratinisation
- Superficial
- Intermediated
- Spinosum (Prickle cell layer)
- Basale
 Othokeratinisation (no nucleus )
 Parakeratinisation ( nuclei )
 Non-keratinisation

Structure of Mucosa
1) Lining Mucosa
- Soft palate : Thin NKSSE
- Alveolar mucosa: thin NKSSE
- Bucccal mucosa: Thick NKSSE
- Lips: Thin NKSSE except vermillion border
- Ventral tongue: Thin NKSSE
2) Masticatory Mucosa
 Stratum corneum
 Stratum granulosm : keratohyaline
granules
 Stratum Basale
 Lamina Propria
*Hemidesmosome
papillae
- Gingiva: Thick NKSSE, SSE
- Hard Palate: KSSE, thick lamina propria
3) Specialised Mucosa
- Dorsal Tongue :
