Dr. Nand Kishor Karmali, Dr. Subhash Modi

Aim: To study the most common shape position direction of mental foramen in dry mandible with clinical importance in Jharkhand region. Material and Methods: 46 dry mandible were collected from the Department of Anatomy, Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College, Jamshedpur, Jharkhand and were investigated for the shape position and direction of mental foramen Result: Mental foramen was present in all 46 mandibles (45 bilateral and 1 unilateral). Most common shape was oval (58.69%). The most frequent position of mental foramen was in line with the longitudinal axis of the 2nd premolar tooth (64.82%), and the most common direction was postero-superiorly (91.30%).
