Abstract

Multiple arteries perforate the lingual cortex of mandibular symphysis. These arteries might be damaged during various surgical procedures and can pose significant health risk to the patient. It would be beneficial for clinicians to know these anatomic landmarks in order to prevent complications.Key words: Mandibular symphisis, lingual artry, Sublingual artry, Dental implant.
