Behind the tooth the alveolar groove becomes narrower gradually and disappears in a length of about 140 mm.
alveolar prognathism is almost entirely lacking in all groups.
Frequently they are found in alveolar arrangement, retaining the original outline of the alveoli of the lung (Fig. 4, b).
The teeth and their tubercles and the alveolar process are normal.
alveolar cells commonly contain fat-droplets and, less frequently, myelin globules.
Of the latter, the lower portion is drawn out, the inner and the alveolar part inward.
If the occlusion be not normal, the upper jaw and alveolar process will develop laterally as well as anteriorly.
Sometimes it proceeds from the gingivo-buccal sulcus of the lower jaw, sometimes from the alveolar border of the gums.
The alveolar arch is pushed forward and thus gains an appearance which reminds us of the higher apes.
In the second, the same apex is placed at the alveolar border, and the angle then becomes fairly easy to appreciate.
