Abstract

LINGUAL NERVE and Chorda - Tympani are usually damaged during surgical removal of the lower THIRD MOLAR, tooth, removed. The frequency of the damage rated 11 to 22% of all operations. This is mainly due to a lack of knowledge on the position of these nerves in lower THIRD MOLAR region. A group of 430 fresh cadavers have been studied for this anatomical landmark. Results indicated that the distance between upper border of nerve sheath and lingual crest of alveolar process vertical dimension, to be at 3.01±0.42 mm and the distance between lateral border of nerve sheath and middle of lingual plate in lower THIRD MOLAR region horizontal dimension to be at 2.06±1.1mm. The nerve was found to be in contact with lingual plate in 22.3 % of all cases.
