Card Set Information
Identify the types of solid joints.
What is the difference between a solid joint & synovial joint?
- adjacent surfaces are linked by fibrous connective tissue, or cartilage
- restricted movement compared to synovial joints
- connected skeletal components separated by a narrow articular cavity
- have a layer of (usually hyaline) cartilage -> covers articulating features
- presense of joint capsule (inner synovial membrane & fibrous membrane)
adjacent bones are linked by a thin connective tissue layer (sutural ligament)
b/w teeth & adjacent bone
short collagen tissue fibers in the periodontal ligament run b/w tooth root and & bony socket
2 adjacent bones linked by a ligament
2 ossification centers in a developing bone remain sepearated by a layer of cartilage
2 separate bones are interconnected by cartilage
Most occur on midline
Explain the characteristics of a typical synovial joint.
Articular (joint) capsule
Identify the different types of synovial joints.
