it forms the inferior portion of the bony nasal septum, the partition that divides the nasal cavity into right and left sidesMaxillaepaired, unite to form the upper jawbonearticulate with every bone of the face except the mandible (lower jawbone)forms part of the floors of the orbits, part of the lateral walls and floor of the nasal cavity, and most of the hard palatehard palate — is the bony roof of the mouth and is formed by the palatine processes of the maxillae and horizontal plates of the palatine bonesseparates the nasal cavity front the oral cavityeach contains a large maxillary sinus that empties into the nasal cavitythe alveolar process of the maxilla is a ridge like arch that contains the alveoli(sockets) for the maxillary (upper) teeththe palatine process is a horizontal projection of the maxilla the forms the anterior 3/4s of the hard palatethe unions and fusion of the maxillary bones normally is completed before birthfusion fails, the condition is referred to as a cleft palateinfraorbital foramen, an opening in t he maxilla inferior to the orbit, allows passage of the infraorbital blood vessels and nerve , a branch of the maxillary division of the trigeminal (V) nerveincisive foramen — posterior to the incisor teethit transmits branches of the greater palatine blood vessels and nasopalatine nerveinferior orbital fissure — located between the greater wing of the sphenoid and the maxillastructure associated with the maxilla and sphenoid boneZygomatic Bones 2 , aka cheekbones, form the prominences of the cheeks and part of the lateral wall and floor of each orbitarticulate with the frontal, maxilla, sphenoid and temporal bonesits temporal processes project posteriorly and articulates with the zygomatic process of the temporal bone to for the zygomatic arch Mandiblelower jawbone, largest , strongest facial boneonly movable skull bone (other than the auditory ossicles, small bones in ears)consists of..a curved, horizontal portion, the body and two perpendicular portions, the ramiangle of the mandible is the area where each ramus meets the bodyeach rams has a posterior condylar process that articulates with the mandibular fossa and articular tubercle of the temporal bone to form the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and an anterior
coronoid process to which temporals muscle attaches mandibular notch — depression btw the coronoid and the condylar processesalveolar process — ridge like arch containing the alveoli (sockets) for the mandibular (lower) teeth mental foramen is approximately inferior to the second premolar toothmandibular foramen is on the medial surface of each ramsbeginning of the mandibular canal, which runs obliquely in the rams and anteriorly to the body through canal , inferior alveolar nerves and blood vessels temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome — dull pain around the ear , tenderness of the jaw muscles , a clicking to popping noise when opening or closing the mouth, limited or abnormal opening of the mouth, headache, tooth
