Locate and name each of the facial bones.
The facial bones are named and located as follows:
Facial bones - Location Inferior Nasal Conchae - Form the sides of the nasal cavity, anterior to the skull Lacrimal Bones - Between the maxilla and ethmoid bone, on the medial wall of the orbits Mandible - Inferior to the face, articlulating with the mandibular fossae posteriorly Maxillae - Below the nasalbridge and the zygomatic arch anteriorly Nasal Bones - Bridge of the nose, on either side Palatine Bones - Roof of the mouth, posteriorly Vomer - Nasal cavity midline Zygomatic Bones - Anterior to the skull, to the side of the orbit.
Facial skeleton is a complex structure, composed of fourteen bones. The maxillae form the upper jaw. These bones are located at the midline of the mouth roof. The palatine bone is a paired bone, located between the maxilla and sphenoid bone. The zygomatic bone is small, paired bone, situated at the upper and lateral part of the face, join the zygomatic process of the temporal bone. The lacrimal bones are situated at the medial orbit wall. We have two nasal bones located in the middle area of the face. The vomer is located in the midsagittal line, runs vertically within the nasal cavity. The inferior nasal conchae extend horizontally along the lateral wall of the nasal cavity. The mandible forms the lower jaw and sits beneath the maxilla.
