Anatomical terms of bone

In the human oral cavity, the incisive foramen, also called anterior palatine foramen, is a funnel-shaped opening in the bone of the oral hard palate immediately behind the incisor teeth where blood vessels and nerves pass. The incisive foramen is continuous with the incisive canal, this foramen or group of foramina are located posterior to the central incisor teeth in the incisive fossa of the maxilla.

The incisive foramen receives the nasopalatine nerves from the floor of the nasal cavity along with the sphenopalatine artery supplying the oral mucosa covering the hard palate of the mouth
