Özet

Although nasopalatine canal (NPC) is one of the most important anatomical structures in premaxillary region, few documents are available with regard to anatomic variations, size, and morphology of NPC in the literature. In recent years, the need for radiological identification of anatomical structures has grown with increased dental implant applications in anterior maxillary region with higher esthetic expectations. This study aimed at investigating the NPC's shape and anatomical variations by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the Turkish society, in a particular region.
