A study of the radiological determination of the position of the mandibular foramen in relation to the anterioposterior width was carried out Total 80 patients were selected for the study that required minor oral surgical procedures like alveoloplasties, simple extractions, and removal of third molars, and different age groups were also considered. The mean and standard deviation values were evaluated by using radiographs and measurements of the anteroposterior width at rami of the mandible, and the position of the mandibular foramen was noted from the deepest point of the coronoid notch. In our study, we found that even though there are variations in the anteroposterior width of the mandible at rami, the mandibular foramen was found in the second quadrant and distal to the center of rami of the mandible.
