What makes the human face so special and captivating is its ability to coordinate all of the muscles, connective tissues and sensory organs into a perfect and unified symphony of functioning movement.
For instance, the way the teeth close, the function of the tongue, and the function of the soft palate are all dependant on the proper inter-relationship between the boney structures of the face and the soft tissue structures of the face. The ability to eat is also tied to the coordinated inter-relationship between the boney foundation of the face and the animated soft tissue.
