What does telecanthus (widening of intercanthal distance) and almond-shaped palpebral fissures tell you?
there is detachment of medial canthal ligament on disruption of nasal orbital area

mental nerve of V3
The inferior alveolar artery and inferior alveolar nerve enter the mandible at the (blank)

inferior dental plexus from inferior alveolar nerve
Dental branch arteries from inferior alveolar artery
If you get hit in the mandible, where is it most likely to fracture?
body> neck> angle

no because the temporalis muscle protects it
(blank) are can fracture from blow to symphysis
