How to use "Buccal" in context?

The buccal cavity refers to the space in the upper temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that encircles the cheek and contains the teeth and their roots. The buccal cavity is also home to the carnassial teeth - two large Blade-like teeth in the front of the mouth that are used for slicing food.

The TMJ is a socket-like joint that allows the jaw to move forward and backward. The soft tissue that makes up the buccal cavity is easily torn, so the joint needs to be kept lubricated with special saliva.
