Anterior superior alveolar artery

Last revised by Ian Bickle on 9 Sep 2022

The anterior superior alveolar artery is a small branch of the infraorbital artery. It branches off before the infraorbital artery leaves the infraorbital foramen, descending medially along the anterior aspect of the maxilla to the alveolar process.

It supplies the upper medial incisors, canines and mucous membrane of the maxillary sinus.
