A wonderful addition to a dental office or school, this unique replica of the human skull is exceptionally constructed and detailed. The calvarium is removable and the base of skull is mid-sagitally divided, to allow for greater internal detail to be visible. The skull model features a frontal sinus, perpendicular lamina and vomer that are fitted with flaps which can be opened to view the lateral nose wall and sphenoidal sinus. On the left half, the temporal bone can be removed and folded up in the area of the tympanic membrane. Maxilla and mandible of the skull are opened to reveal the alveolar nerves. On the right side the temporal bone is opened to reveal the sigmoid sinus, the facial nerve canal and the semicircular ducts. Additional flaps on the skull are located at the maxillary sinus and the right half of the mandible, so that the dental roots of the premolars and molars of the lower jaw can also be viewed. The skull includes natural occlusion, as well as the individual removal and replacement of each tooth.
