The teeth all are present and entire except that p2 on the right side is missing from its alveolus.
The tooth should be pulled out straight, lest the alveolus be broken.
The margins of the cleft in the lip are also attached to the alveolus by firm reflections of the mucous membrane.
Limited portions of the alveolus are frequently broken in the extraction of teeth.
The inflammation begins close to the alveolus, and may spread back along the palate.
A muco-purulent discharge escapes from within the free edge of the gum and alveolus.
A dental plate should be fitted to fill up the gap in the alveolus.
What is meant is a piece of the alveolar process, or portion of bone around the alveolus.
In the Atlantic City specimen the axis of the tooth where it emerges from the alveolus is 91 mm.
The alveolus lies entirely behind the symphysis, its anterior end being 160 mm.
