JAW

It is a flat and irregular bone. It forms four cavities: the roof of the oral cavity, the floor and the lateral wall of the nose, the floor of the orbit and the maxillary sinus. Each bone has a body and four processes.

Body

 Infra-Orbital foramen & #8211; passage to the infraorbital vessels and nerve

 Orbital Face & #8211; forms most of the floor of the orbit

 Maxillary Sinus & #8211; large pyramidal cavity inside the jaw body

Processes

 Frontal & #8211; strong blade that starts from the lateral limit of the nose

 Zygomatic & #8211; rough triangular eminence located at the anterior, infratemporal and orbital separation angle

 Alveolar & #8211; deep teeth cavities

 Palatine & #8211; horizontal and protrudes medially from the nasal face of the

THE Jaw hinges with nine bones: Frontal, Ethmoid, Nasal, Zygomatic, Lower Nasal Conch, Lacrimal, Palatine, Vomer and Maxilla on the opposite side.
