Jaw

Term Category: Anatomy

The jaw, also known as the mandible, is the bone that forms the lower part of the face and the lower jawline. It is the largest and strongest bone in the human skull and plays a crucial role in various functions. The jawbone houses the lower teeth and provides support for chewing and biting food. It is also involved in speaking and facial expressions. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), located near the ears, connects the jaw to the skull, enabling the jaw's movement for talking and eating.
