  3. Lateral excursion
    The movement of the lower jaw to the side.
  4. Osteoligamentous
    The place where the bone and the ligaments are joined together.
  5. Periodontal

  10. Synostosis

  11. 3 types of joints
    Fibrous, Synovial, Cartilaginous
  12. Types of synovial joints
    • Uniaxial
    • 1. Hinge (i.e. Knee)
    • 2. Gliding (i.e. intercarpal
    • 3. Pivot (i.e. Superior radioulnar jt)

    • Biaxial
    • 1. Saddle (capometacarpal thumb)
    • 2. Condyloid (metacarpalphalangeal)
    • 3. Ball & Socket (glenohumeral)
  13. Types of Fibrous joints
    • 1. Suture: In cranium
    • 2. Gomphoses: teeth
    • 3. Syndesmosis: Interosseous membrane
  14. Types of Cartilaginous joints
    • 1. Synchondrosis: hyaline joint to bone... called synostosis when hyaline ossifies
    • 2. Symphesis: fibocartilaginous disc (pubic symphesis)
