Mandible


We've now learned about all the parts of the neurocranium area of the cranium.

Remember the other part of the cranium was the facial skeleton, also called the splanchocranium or viscerocranium.

There are several parts to that bone as well, such as the mandible.

The mandible is also known as your jawbone. It's the part of your skeleton that holds on to your teeth.
