Position, variation, and asymmetry of the mental foramen: A Morphological study

Overview

This study aimed to morphologically investigate the types of position, variation, and asymmetry of the mental foramen. We examined 76 human adult dry mandibles bilaterally, the exact ages and sexes of which were unknown. Accessory foramens were noted in four mandibles (2.63%) on the left side. Asymmetric positions were dominantly observed in positions II and III on the left side and positions IV, V, and VI on the right side.

Summary

Evaluation of the position types can serve as a guide for surgical procedures.
