Surgical procedures carried out between the chin foramina at the anterior mandible level are usually considered free of severe neurovascular complications, due to the excellent bone density in that region and the absence of important neurovascular structures. However, the international scientific literature on this issue reports rare but severe hemorrhagic complications following implant surgery at this level. The aim of this review article is to offer the clinician, through an accurate investigation of the anatomy of the median mandibular region, the tools to carry out oral surgery operations at this level under safe conditions, reducing the possible intraoperative risks to a minimum.
