    Aim: This study provides the morphometric study of the foramina located in the mandible. Materials and Methods: For this survey, 50 dry adult human mandibles are investigated. The lingual foramina are divided into medial and lateral foramina. Foramina located at the alveolar process and the midline is divided according to its location at the genial tubercles. The height of the mandible in the genial symphysis and the distances from the foramina to the alveolar crest and the lower border of the mandible are measured. Results: The measurements of medial and lateral lingual foramina are 97.9% and 78.4%, respectively. Discussion: The precise knowledge oSf the topography of the foramina and its contents is of importance to the dentists, oral maxillofacial surgeons during surgeries. The foramina’s location is directly affected by the dental status. The morphology of edentulous mandibles increases the risk of intraoperative complications at the anterior mandible.
