Click sounds involve an interesting and dramatic use of the vocal organs.
The air stream is firmly closed and suction is created in the mouth with a final and sudden implosion of air.
This mode of controlling the airflow may be used to produce several different phones according to the points of articulation used.

  Lateral alveolar click - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lateral clicks may be either oral or nasal, which means air is allowed to escape either through the mouth or the nose.
The lateral clicks are common in Khoisan languages and the neighboring Nguni languages (e.g.
In the Nguni languages, the tenuis click is denoted by the letter x, the murmured click by gx, the aspirated click by xh (as in "Xhosa"), and the nasal click by nx.

Laterals are "L"-like consonants pronounced with an occlusion made somewhere along the axis of the tongue, while air from the lungs escapes at one side or both sides of the tongue.
Rarer lateral consonants include the retroflex laterals that can be found in most Indic languages; and the sound of Welsh ll, the voiceless alveolar lateral fricative [ɬ] that is also found in Zulu and many Native American languages.
The symbol for the alveolar lateral flap is the basis for the expected symbol for the retroflex lateral flap:

The lateral periodontal cyst is an uncommon lesion that, as its name suggests is located between the roots of adjacent teeth.
Later on, a jaw swelling or complete radiographic survey revealed the presence of the lesion, and surgery was performed to remove it.
Later on, this "nasopalatine duct" disappears; however, remnants of it may persist in the anterior maxilla.

To produce a (post) alveolar click, the front of the tongue is raised to press firmly against the post-alveolar region.
To produce a lateral click, the blade of the tongue is pressed against the alveolar ridge causing one side of the tongue to be brought into firm contact with the corresponding side of the oral cavity.
In the formation of the click (primary articulation) the airstream is velaric and ingressive.

 Click consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Clicks occur in all the Khoisan languages of southern Africa and in several neighbouring Bantu languages, such as Nguni (Zulu, Xhosa, Swazi, Phuthi and Ndebele), Sesotho, Yeyi of Botswana, and the Mbukushu, Kwangali, and Gciriku languages of the Caprivi Strip, which borrowed them from Khoisan languages.
The five click releases with dedicated symbols in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) are bilabial ʘ, dental ǀ, palato-alveolar or "palatal" ǂ, (post)alveolar or "retroflex" ǃ, and alveolar lateral ǁ.
Generally a click is replaced by a consonant that retains the manner of articulation of the accompaniment.

click is a sharp pop made by drawing the tongue down quickly from the roof of the mouth.
Each click can be accompanied by voicing, nasality, aspiration, and ejection to produce a large number of different click combinations.
All click and most nonclick consonants appear at the beginning of words and are followed by a vowel.

This point is used in the measurement of maxillo-alveolar length and is determined in practice, as the point where the mid-sagittal plane intersects a wire needle placed against the posterior margins of the alveolar processes of the maxilla (Martin 1956:451).
Auriculare (au): It is defined as a point on the lateral aspect of the root of the zygomatic process at the deepest incurvature, wherever it may be.
In cases of a defective or resorbed alveolar process, determination of Prosthion becomes uncertain or impossible, and upper facial height cannot be measured (Martin 1956:449).

 Oral implant for oversized dental support openings - Patent 4521192
Preferably, the lateral dimension of the base or support is adjustable to permit it to be adapted for use in various size openings.
In an illustrative embodiment of the invention, the implant is in the form of a support adapted to be fitted horizontally in an oversized opening in the jawbone of a patient, which oversized opening is due to a previously failed implant blade or screw type implant or a group of over-retained periodontally involved teeth.
Preferably, however, the lateral dimension of the implant support is made adjustable so that a single implant or group of implants can be made to fit in various size openings in the jawbone.

Clicks are sounds articulated with an ingressive velaric (oral) airstream mechanism.
The click articulation is produced during the hold stage of a voiceless velar plosive.
Treating the voiceless clicks as symbolically unmarked and the voiced or nasalized ones as marked has its parallel in the orthographies of the click languages.

For an individual with weak inspiratory muscles and no VC or breathing tolerance, GPB can provide normal alveolar ventilation and perfect safety when not using a ventilator or in the event of sudden ventilator failure day or night.
In summary, our intervention goals are to maintain lung and chest wall elasticity (and to promote normal lung and chest wall growth for children) using lung and chest wall mobilization to maintain normal alveolar ventilation around the clock and to maximize cough flows.
Long-term, we seek to avert episodes of acute respiratory failure during intercurrent chest infections, avoid hospitalizations and prolong survival without resort to tracheotomy.

Moreover, even if the new symbols for the clicks were adopted, it would still be necessary to use the letters g and ŋ in special conventional senses differing from those which they have in other languages, namely g for denoting voice, and ŋ for denoting nasalization (not a separate nasal consonant).
