ROA, Ignacio  and  ARRIAGADA, Oscar. Anatomical Variations of Mandibular Canal with Clinical Significance: Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.3, pp.971-974. ISSN 0717-9502.

The mandibular canal and its contents have an important role in the field of maxillofacial surgery. This can present anatomical variations, which are clinically relevant mainly in implant procedures. Lack of knowledge regarding these variations has been linked to complications in carrying out surgical procedures and anesthesia in dental and maxillofacial practice. Therefore, we report this case of accessory mental canal and mental anterior loop.

Keywords : Mandibular canal; Mental canal; Anatomical variation; Mandibular nerve; Anterior loop.
