Anatomy, Head and Neck, Lingual Nerve

Abstract
The lingual nerve branches from the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. The lingual nerve is often in a common stem with the inferior alveolar nerve after the mandibular division enters the infratemporal fossa through foramen ovale.[1] The lingual nerve separates from the inferior alveolar nerve and then descends anteriorly into the oral cavity. As it does so, it innervates the mucous membrane of the anterior two-thirds of the tongue, the floor of the oral cavity, and the adjacent gum (lingual gingiva).[2]
