Triple Mental Foramina Detected by CBCT

Hristina Mihaylova [2]

Abstract: The identification of the mental foramen (MF) is an important prerequisite for surgical procedures involving anterior part of the mandible. Its position and possible presence of accessory mental foramina need to be considered before surgery in order to avoid mental nerve branches injury. We present a rare case of 33 - year - old woman with triple mental foramina of the right side of the mandible detected by CBCT which was not seen on panoramic radiography.
