Sublingual Space vs Submandibular Space

# Sublingual space is divided from submandibular space by:
a) Fibres of mylohyoid
b) Submandibular gland
c) Body of mandible
d) Geniohyoid

The correct answer is A. Fibres of Mylohyoid.

The mylohyoid muscle, which forms the floor of the oral cavity, is the key to the diagnosis and surgical management of the infections of the sublingual and submandibular spaces. The submandibular space is separated from the overlying sublingual space by the fibers of the mylohyoid muscle.
