ABSTRACT

The presence of bifid mandibular canal reported in the literature varies from 0.08% to 0.9%. The mandibular canal which transmits the inferior alveolar nerve which is responsible for the innervations of pulp tissue of all mandibular teeth is a target area for mandibular block technique. Failure to achieve a profound anesthesia during dental extraction is a challenge for the dental practitioner. This case report examines all the possible features about the bifid mandibular canal.
