Aims and objectives: Accessory mental foramen is a rare anatomical variation in human mandibles. The incidence of accessory mental foramen depends on age, sex, Race, ethnicity, population. Its position, number and distance from usual mental foramen and the surrounding bony landmarks are highly variable. So the aim of this study is to find out morphology and morphometry of accessory mental foramen in Indian population.
Materials and Methods: Present study was under taken 100 samples of dried mandibles of UN known sex and age. The incidence of accessory mental foramen was recorded and distance from usual mental foramen to Accessory mental foramen was measured and recorded by Digital vernier caliper.
Results: the incidence of Accessory mental foramen was 2%, observed bilateral variation in 2 cases out of 100 samples.
Conclusion: The anatomical knowledge about existence of accessory mental foramen may be helpful to dental surgeons to avoid injury to neurovascular bundle. The current study tried to given the incidence of bilateral presence of accessory mental foramen in Indian population.
