The right mandibular rami demonstrated some loss of bone density at the level of the palatine bone; the initial fracture was speculated to be on both the os prearticulare (prearticular bone) and the os supra-angulare (supra-angular bone).
(6) Each ramus of the mandible consists of the os supra-angulare (dorsal supra-angular bone), os angulare (ventral angular bone), os articulare (osterior articular bone), os spleniale (splenial bone), os prearticulare (prearticular bone), and os dentale (dentary bone) (Fig 9).
