Mandibular Condyle


The mandibular condyle is actively involved in endochondral ossification. The condylar cartilage is an important growth site in the mandible, contributing to the elongation of the mandibular ramus. The round upper end of the lower jaw, or the movable portion of the joint, is considered secondary cartilage (condylar cartilage).
