Supernumerary incisive canals in a cadaver: a rare anatomical variation
- 26 Downloads
We present a rare anatomical variation in which an additional incisive canal was observed during the routine dissection of the palatal region in a cadaver. The diameter of the incisive and additional incisive canals measured 4.59 mm and 0.91 mm, respectively. Even though this variation is rare, oral surgeons should be aware of such anatomical variations for a better understanding.
