The human head is comprised of 23 different bones. The Cranium,
also called the "Skull," describes the skeleton that comprises
all of the bones of the head, face and lower jaw (i.e., the
mandible). In an adult, various bones of the cranium are paired
(i.e., consist of a left and a right) while others which cross
the mid-sagittal plane are unpaired.
Paired Cranial: Parietals, Temporals
Unpaired Cranial: Frontal, Occipital, Sphenoid, Ethmoid
Paired Facial: Lacrimals,
Nasals, Zygomatics, Maxillae, Palatines, Inferior Nasal Conchae
Unpaired Facial: Vomer, Mandible, Hyoid
