The mental foramen is located bilaterally on the buccal surface of the mandible between the lower first and second premolars. We have observed multiple mental foramina in one of the cadavers during dissection of the inferior alveolar nerve in the gross anatomy lab at the university of Detroit mercy- dental school. Accessory mental foramina are located in close proximity to the second molar on the right side of the mandible. Dental health professionals and oral surgeons should be aware of the presence possible accessory mental foramen is important to both oral surgeons and general practice dentists.
