How to Classify Facial Spaces Based on the Mode of Involvement?1) Direct involvement
Primary spaces
(a) Maxillary spaces (b) Mandibular spaces.
2) Indirect involvement:
Secondary spaces.

What are the names of Primary Maxillary spaces?
These are canine, buccal, and infratemporal spaces.

What are the names of Primary Mandibular spaces?
These are submental, buccal, submandibular, and sublingual spaces.

What are the names of Secondary fascial spaces?
masseteric, pterygomandibular, superficial and deep temporal, lateral pharyngeal, retropharyngeal, and prevertebral spaces, parotid space.

How to Classify Facial Spaces Based on Clinical Significance?
i. Face
ii. Suprahyoid
iii. Infrahyoid
iv. Spaces of total neck

What are the names of Spaces of Face?
These are Buccal, canine, masticatory, parotid spaces.

What are the names of Spaces of Suprahyoid?
sublingual, submandibular-(submaxillary, submental), pharyngomaxillary (lateral pharyngeal), peritonsillar

What are the names of Spaces of Infrahyoid?
Anterovisceral (pretracheal)

What are the names of Spaces of Spaces of total neck?retropharyngeal, space of carotid sheath.
