Abstract

The paper presents metrical data on the palatine sutures of a dry skull collection comprising 29 male and 33 female specimens. The length and mutual proportions of the mid-palatal, interpalatine and transverse palatine sutures were considered. These properties led to a conclusion as to the extent to which the palatine process of the maxilla and palatine bones dominate in the formation of the hard palate. We discovered that the palatine process of the maxilla is prevalent and that it constitutes approximately 65% of the hard palate in both sexes. Moreover our findings indicated a significant correlation in the diameters of the palatine sutures that are arranged sagittally.
