BACKGROUND Lingula is a tongue-like flap of bone that overlaps the mandibular foramen antero-medially and location is clinically significant in oral and maxillofacial surgeries. The aim of this study was to assess the shape and precise location of lingula using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, 3-dimensional images provided by CBCT of 63 patients (28 females, 35 males, age range 25-70 years) were retrospectively evaluated. All CBCT images were… CONTINUE READING
