  1. how many bones make up the face and how many of those bones are paired
  2. the lower jawbone which articulates with the temporal bones in the only freely moveable joints of the skull
  3. horizontal portion, forms chin
    mandibular body
  4. vertical extension of the body on either side
    mandibular ramus
  5. articulation point of the mandible with the mandibular fossa of the temporal bone
    condylar process
  6. jutting anterior portion of the ramus, site of muscular attachment
    coronoid process
  7. posterior point at which ramus meets the body
    mandibular angle
  8. prominent opening on the body that transmits the mental blood vessels and nerve to the lower jaw
    mental foramen
  9. open the lower jaw of the skull to identify this prominent foramen on the medial aspect of the mandibular ramus
    mandibular foramen
  10. superior margin of mandible; contains sockets in which the teeth line
    alveolar process
  11. anterior median depression indicating point of mandibular fusion
    mandibular symphysis
  12. two bones fused in a median suture; form the upper jawbone and part of the orbits, all bone except the mandible join at this, this is the main or keystone bone of the face
  13. form the anterior hard palate; meet medially in the intermaxillary suture
    palatine processes
  14. opening under the orbit carrying the infraorbital nerves and blood vessels to the nasal region
    infraorbital foramen
  15. large bilateral opening located posterior to the central incisor tooth of the maxilla and piercing the hard palate, transmits the nasopalatine artieries and blood vessels
    incisive fossa
  16. fingernail sized bones forming a part of the medial orbit walls between the maxilla and the ethmoid, serves as a passageway for tears
    lacrimal bone
  17. paired bones posterior to the palatine process; form posterior hard palate and part of the orbit; meet medially at the median palatine suture
    palatine bone
  18. lateral to the maxilla; forms portions of the face commonly called the cheekbone
    zygomatic bone
  19. small rectangular bones forming the bridge of the nose
    nasal bone
  20. blade-shaped bone in median plane of nasal cavity that forms the posterior and inferior nasal septum
  21. thin curved bones protruding medially from the lateral walls of the nasal cavity; serve same purpose as the turbinate portions of the ethmoid bone
    inferior nasal conchae
  22. what are the four bones that contain sinuses
    ethmoid, maxillary, sphenoid and frontal
  23. located in the throat above the larynx serves as an attachment point for the tongue and neck muscles
