ALVEOLAR BONE

  • The alveolar bone is one of the bones in the skull. It is located in the roof of the mouth and supports the teeth.
  • The alveolar bone is made up of two parts: the alveolar process and the alveolar ridge.
  • The alveolar process is a thin, horizontal plate of bone that forms the roof of the mouth.
  • The alveolar ridge is a thick, vertical plate of bone that forms the back of the mouth. 
  • The alveolar process and the alveolar ridge together form the alveolar bone.
  • The alveolar bone supports the teeth and provides a place for them to anchor in the mouth. 
  • It also helps to protect the teeth and the gums from damage. The alveolar bone is a very important part of the skull and mouth.
