What is the difference between a solid joint & synovial joint?
- Solid joints:
- - adjacent surfaces are linked by fibrous connective tissue, or cartilage
- - restricted movement compared to synovial joints
- 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 cartilage
- Articular (joint) capsule
- Synovial membrane
