facial bones

all facial bones are external except for the 2 palatine bones and vomer
how many pair of facial bones,how many singles 6 pairs & 2 singles
what are the facial bones 2 maxilla/maxillary bones,2 zygomatic bones,2 lacrimal bones,2 nasal bones,2 inferior nasal conchae,2 palatine bones,1 vomer,1 mandible
what is a mesocephalic average size head
what is a doliocephalic thin & long head
what is a bradycephalic short & broad head
what is the largest immovable bones of the face the maxillae/maxillary bones
what is the largest movable facial bones (in an adult) mandible
the maxilla forms 4 cavities of the faces what are they the mouth,the nasal,one orbit & maxilla sinus
each maxilla consists of what a centrally located body & 4 processes
the body lies what to the nose lies laterally to the nose
the frontal process projects how upward toward along the lateral border of the nose towards the frontal bone
the zygomatic process projects how laterally to unite with the zygoma
the alveolar process projects how inferior aspect of the body of each maxilla(8 upper teeth)
how is the anterior nasal sinus formed 2 maxillae are united in the midline anteriorly
how is the palatine process demonstrated on a inferior view of the 2 maxillae
the hard palate is know as the bony palate
the maxillae and the hard palate form what kind of joint together they form a synarthrodial(immovable) joint
a congenital defect,an opening b/w the palatine processes,caused by an incomplete joining of the 2 bones cleft palate
forms the posterior part of the hard palate palatine bones
only the horizontal portions of the L-shaped palatine bones are visible on this view smv projection
the palatine bones helps forms the floor of the nasal cavity & the bottom & upper portion of the mouth
what is the pterygoid hamuli the feet of the sphenoid
one zygoma is located lateral to the zygomatic processes of each maxilla,these bones are sometimes called malar bones
what makes up the zygomatic arch maxilla,temporal & zygoma
the zygomatic prominence is a positioning landmark & refer to what the prominent portion of the zygoma
each maxillae articulates with what 2craninal bones,frontal & ethmoid,7facial bones zygoma,lacrimal,nasal,palatine,inferior nasal conchae,vomer,maxilla
each zygoma articulates with 3cranial bones,frontal & sphenoid,temporal,one facial bone maxilla
what are the thinnest and most fragile bones in the entire body rt & lt nasal & lacrimal bones
the nasal bones are located anterior on the medial side of each orbit
the lacrimal bones are located anterior to the frontal process of the maxilla
forms the bridge of the nose 2 fused nasal bones
the nasal bones form what position point the nasion
does nasal bone & lacrimal bone touch? they do not touch,are b/w the maxilla
each lacrimal bone articulates with 2 cranial bones,frontal,ethmoid,2 facial bones maxilla & inferior nasal conchae
each nasal bone articulates with 2 cranial bones,frontal,ethmoid,2 facial bones maxilla & adjacent nasal bone
where is the rt & Lt inferior nasal conchae located at lower 1/3 of the nasal seputum
each nasal conchae articulates with 1 cranial bone ethmoid,3 facial bones maxilla,lacrimal,palatine
what forms the bony nasal seputm the ethmoid & vomer-perpendicular plate of ethmoid & vomer bone
vomer means what plowshare
lacrimal means what tear
the triangle shaped bone forms the inferoposterior part of what the nasal seputum
a deviated nasal seputum describes what clinical condition where the nasal seputum is deflected or displaced laterally
each vomer articulation with 2 cranial bones sphenoid,ethmoid 4 facial bones rt & Lt palatine bones rt & lt maxillae,(nasal seputum also)
at what age does the mandible join together around one year of age
what divides the mandible into two parts the gonion/angle
the body of the mandible is anterior portion of the mandible
the ramus of the mandible is superior portion of the mandible
how far does the alveolar process.ridge extends the entire superior portion of the body
what is the symphsis menti the union of both sides of the mandible
what is the mentum the mental protuberance,a flat triangluar area below the symphysis
what is the mental point the center of the mental protuberance
what is the mental foramina serves as a passageway for nerves and blood vessels
what is the ramus the upper portion forms a u-shaped notch termed the mandibular notch.
what is the coronoid process the anterior end that does not articulate with another bone
what is the condyloid process the posterior process of the upper ramus
the condyle has 2 parts what are they,what do they fit into head & neck-will fit into the temporomandibular fossa
what does the SMV shows the mentum,body,coronoid process,ramus & condyle
