Preoperative delineation of the mandibular canal and surrounding cortical bone thickness is mandatory prior to bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO). The cortical bone thickness of 101 cadaveric mandibles was measured to define the mandibular canal. The mandibles were cut at the anterior ramus, at the third, second, and first molar, and at the premolar. The cortical bone thickness was measured between the mandibular canal and inferior border, buccal cortex, and lingual cortex at each… CONTINUE READING
