Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n synarthrosis Immovable articulation; a joint permitting no motion between or among the bones which enter into its composition: one of three principal kinds of articulation, distinguished from amphiarthrosis, or mixed articulation, and diarthrosis, or movable articulation; a suture. Examples of synarthrosis in the human body are all the sutures of the skull, including that variety called schindylesis, and the socketing of the teeth, technically called gomphosis. Synarthrosis also includes such articulations as the sacro-iliac synchondrosis and the pubic symphysis when these become fixed, and is prone to become ankylosis, or complete bony union. Compare symphysis. Also called synarthrodia.
