Zygomatic bone



Definition

Also called cheekbone or malar bone, the zygomatic bone is a small bone in the cheek. As the link between the maxilla, the skeleton of the face, and the temporal bone, the zygomatic bone has three distinct faces. The lower surface merges with the temporal fossa and partially with the jawbone. The top face forms the floor of the orbital cavity, while the external face represents the subcutaneous part of the zygomatic bone. As a side note: the term zygomatic is also used to describe a muscle that enables people to smile.
