The Inferior nasal conchae (also known
as Turbinator bones) are among the facial
bones of the head.
These three thin bones form the sides of the nasal cavities and are located
in the centre of the face.
As these bones form the nasal cavities they hold
open these important passages easing the flow of air into
the nose for breathing,
and the out-flow of de-oxygenated air (which is mostly carbon dioxide).
