To investigate the incidence and anatomical location of mandibular nutrient canals (NCs) originating from the mandibular canal using dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). CBCT images from 105 patients were examined to evaluate the presence, number, diameter, and course of NCs. NCs and their foramina were bilaterally located in 17 (16.2 %) images. The mean diameters of NCs and foramina were 0.9 ± 0.4 (range, 0.2–3.2) mm and 0.9 ± 0.4 (0.2–2.1) mm, respectively. NCs coursed through the… CONTINUE READING
