The purpose of this article was to evaluate incidence, size, location, course and content of bony foramina and canals located on the lingual side of mandibular midline. Examination of dissections clearly showed a neurovascular bundle in both superior and inferior genial foramina and canals. This means that surgery and especially implant placement in mandibular midline may endanger both blood vessels and nerves. Besides that, several arteries running tbrough these foramina are wide enough to cause severe bleeding in the floor of the oral cavity if they are damaged.
