Inverted Y appears... radiopaque upside down Y formed by the intersection of the lateral wall of the nasal fossa and the anterior border of the maxillary sinus
Genial Tubercles are... tiny bumps of bone that serve as attachment sites for the genioglossus and geniohyoid muscles.
Genial Tubercles are located... on the lingual aspect of the mandible.
Genial Tubercles appear... as a ring-shaped radiopacity inferior to the apices of the mandibular incisors.
Mandibular Canal is... a tubelike passageway through bone that travels the length of the mandible.

Mylohyoid Ridge/line appears... radiopaque
Periodontal Ligament (PDL) Space is... the space between the root of the tooth and the lamina dura.
Periodontal Ligament (PDL) Space appears... as a thin radiolucent line around the root of the tooth.
What is a Foramen? an opening or a hole in bone that permits the passage of nerves and blood vessels.
A Foramen appears... radiolucent
Apical Foramen is made up of... fibers which attach the tooth to the lamina dura.
Apical Foramen appears... radiolucent
