Abstract :

Aims and objectives: To identify the anatomic characteristics of the Nasopalatine canal(NPC) and Nasopalatine foramen(NPF) in terms of its morphology, to determine the occurrence of anatomical variations; and to look for any correlations of these variables with age and gender. Methodology: This study comprised of CBCT images of 100 patients between 15-60 years of age obtained from the archives. The images were assessed in the Romexis viewer. The morphology of Nasopalatine canal and foramen were evaluated in terms of length, shape and size in different sections. The obtained data were then subjected to statistical analysis. Conclusion: The present study indicated that the NPC and NPF has a great deal of variability with regard to its dimensions as well as to its morphological appearance. There was also variation in few parameters with respect to gender.
