It is morphologically divided into two regions, the dentoalveolar and basal symphyses.<sup>1</sup></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The dentoalveolar symphysis consists of alveolar process and lower incisors. Alveolar bone thickness varies according to location and facial type.<sup>2</sup> Generally, there is a greater bone thickness at the apex then in the cervical region and towards the lingual surface when compared to the labial surface.<sup>2</sup>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;The lingual side of cortical bone is thicker than the buccal and there is a closer approximation of the root apex to the lingual cortical.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The basal symphysis is a part of the main body of the mandibular symphysis with more apical location. The morphological variation of the menton has a strong genetic basis.</p> Dr. Akshaya Rajagopal Copyright (c) 2018 International Journal For Research In Biology & Pharmacy (ISSN: 2208-2093) 2019-05-10 2019-05-10 4 7 01 12
