The chin hole: position and correlations with other mandibular parameters
Mela F., Bocca M., Coscia D., Bottalico L.
Background. The present study analyzes the position of mental foramen, in order to research possible correlations with other mandibular parameters.
Methods. The study has been conducted on 76 dry mandibles, for each mandible we have measured the exact position of the mental forum respect the other mandibular parameters. Both linear and angular relations and misurations have been made.
Results and conclusions. The results obtained confirm that the mental foramen maintains its position by increasing GoGn. The results did not show particularly significant aspects in comparison with the literature on the subject, thus confirming other authors' opinion.
