1

An area where two bones meet and articulate with each other.

A joint

2

A joint that is slightly movable, joined by hyaline cartilage or fibrocartialge.

Cartilaginous/amphiarthrosis

3

Cartilaginous joint held together by hyaline. Holds two bones in close proximity (i.e. epiphyseal plate).

Synchondrosis

4

Cartilaginous joint held together by fibrocartilage. Very little movement (i.e. pubic symphysis).

Symphysis

5

Joints with little mobility. Material joining the bones is dense collagenous tissue and fibroelastic tissue.

Fibrous/Synarthrosis

6

Fibrous joint with irregular shaped edges that interlock (i.e. calvaria or skull cap).

Suture

7

Fibrous joint that is a peg and socket type of joint (i.e. joint between a tooth and its socket).

Gomphosis

8

Fibrous joint that is held together by an interosseous membrane (i.e. between ulna and radius).

Syndesmosis
