Example text

Because of its special location at mid-level in the cranium, the sphenoid is often called upon to balance the adaptive movements of the other bones of the cranial base relative to one another by undergoing compensatory movements about its antero-posterior and vertical axes. Likewise, the plasticity of the roots of the greater wings allows them to adapt their movements to those of the body in different planes. 44 Movements of the midline bones • Figures 23, 24, 25 45 PA RT O N E : Cranial Biomechanics 46 Movement of the spheno-basilar synchondrosis This joint is deemed to be the underlying motor and starting point of cranial motion.

It must therefore adapt its position to take into account the following small movements: • spheno-maxillary torsion; • shearing motion between the sphenoid and the maxilla; • disengagement of the spheno-maxillary suture; • lateral flexion of the fronto-maxillary suture; • separation of the fronto-maxillary suture; • antero-posterior shearing motion at the fronto-maxillary suture.

This is the focal point of all vertical anti-gravity forces. The three cranial subsystems • Figure 17 35 PA RT O N E : Cranial Biomechanics 36 The expressive face Biomechanically speaking, facial movements are due to the sphenoid and, to a lesser degree, to the temporal bones, and the movements progress via the zygomatic process along the buttress-like lines of force that originate from the mastoid processes. We know that the facial bones are hung from the frontal bone, which lies in the median plane and participates in movements of flexion–extension.
