Alveolar bone is the component of the maxilla and the mandible that accommodates and supports the alveoli of the teeth. The alveolar bone comprises of two parts-alveolar bone proper which lines the socket of the tooth along with root, cementum and the periodontal ligament (periodontium) constitutes the Attachment apparatus; and the supporting alveolar bone. This attachment apparatus provides support to the tooth in the jaw as well as distributes forces generated by the teeth uniformly to the alveolar bone surrounding it. These functional changes are expressed by the process of ‘Bony remodelling’ in alveolar process. Therefore, this review provides an understanding of the anatomical aspect of alveolar bone and the molecular events that balance the formation and remodelling of alveolar bone.

Keywords: Alveolar Bone, Attachment Apparatus, Bony Remodelling.
