To compare the shape of the inferior alveolar canal
in both the genders.

Mandibular alterations may be unilateral or bilateral and include enlarged mandibular and mental foramen, widened inferior alveolar canal
, branching of mandibular canal, hyperostosis, deepened sigmoid notch, elongated condylar neck, rarefied condylar and coronoid process, medial concavity in mandibular ramus, decreased or flat gonial angle, irregular inferior cortex, and cyst like lesions [1-4, 6].
The system also comes with pre-set programs that minimize setup, exclusive 2D+ technology that helps determine the location of supernumerary teeth, find impactions and apical lesions, or identify the root relationship to the inferior alveolar canal
. Also new from Carestream is its partnership with Amazing Charts that makes it the single source of Certified EHR for Carestream customers using CS SoftDent, CS PracticeWorks, CS WinOMS, Windent and OrthoTrac practice management software.
An x-ray revealed that the right mandible had a "moth-eaten" appearance that extended from the subcondylar area on the right to the symphyseal area on the left; obliteration of the right inferior alveolar canal
was also evident (figure 1).
Clinical significance of computed tomographic assessment and anatomic features of the inferior alveolar canal
as risk factors for injury of the inferior alveolar nerve at third molar surgery.
The other important radiographical position factor in the predication of the intensity of postoperative pain was the preoperative index of difficulty for the extraction of lower wisdom teeth according to the Pell and Gregory classification, (22,23) intense and strong pain was highly associated with a difficult or moderate surgical extraction (p = 0.000), especially when the case included a deeply impacted molar that was associated with exposure of the inferior alveolar canal
or the presence of intraoprative bleeding and insufficient space available in relation to the ramus.The result coincide with an observation made by Graziani et al, who believed that surgical complexity was often a valuable predictor of inflammation-related sequelae after dentoalveolar surgery.
