    Introduction: An natural passage through which the neurovascular passes through is known as the accessory foramina. The accessory mental, mandibular, retromolar, and lingual foramina are the various accessory foramina found in the mandible. In this research, the study on the various accessory foramina is done with its clinical significance. To avoid neurovascular complications, particular attention should be paid to the possible occurrence of one or more accessory mental foramen during surgical procedures involving the mandible. The aim of this research is to study the various accessory foramina in the mandible and its clinical significance. Materials and Methods: The study was undertaken on 58 dry mandibular bones. The collection of mandibular bones was taken from the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College, Saveetha University, Chennai. The accessory foramina on the mandibular body and ramus were examined manually. Results: In this study, 58 dry mandibular bones were taken in which the accessory mandibular foramina at th right side had a total of 17 foramina, and at the left, it was 14; likewise in mental foramina at the right, it was 4, and at the left, it was 7; in retromolar foramina, it was 4 on the right and 4 on the left; and next coming to the lingual foramina, it was found to be 44 in the superior and 20 on the inferior side. Conclusion: The present study establishes the incidence of various accessory foramina and its clinical significance. Care should be given to prevent any damage to neurovascular bundles passing through the accessory foramina during any anesthetic, surgical, and implantation procedures of the mandible by diagnosing with the help of panoramic radiographs.
