The skeleton of skull and face protects the brain and its annexes, houses the or
gans of sense, and supports the organs of respiration and mastication.
The neurocranium has the appearance of a hollow ball, with the major axis direct
ed anteroposteriorly, and the bulky rear end. At its anterior pole attached pres
ents the bones of the face, and its rear edge resting on the spine by setting th
e craniovertebral joint.
The bones of the braincase are called flat bones. Was covered by a thin perioste
um and upholstery inside the dura mater (meningeal membranes). They consist of t
wo sheets of compact bone tissue called outer and inner tables among which is a
layer of spongy tissue of variable thickness, called diploid.

FRONT (os frontale; squama frontalis)
From the Latin fons, Fontis = source; squama = scale. It has an outline that bec
omes ossified pair in the second year of life. Frontal suture (suture frontalis;
metopic suture) is a single bone, medium-sized symmetrical occupying the front
of the skull.
Scale front. Fetuses and newborns in the two halves of the scale are separated b
y the frontal or metopic suture. Forms the roof of the orbit. Above the supraorb
ital margin is the brow. Glabella: between the superciliary ridges. Tubers front
: mild frontal bossing.
Frontal Bone in it are considered three faces and three edges: Anterior
