<p style="TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><font size="3"><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Calibri; mso-bidi-font-family: Arial">Mental foramen is an opening of the mental canal onto the lateral surface of the mandible. In this pilot radiographical study, in Malay population the effects of ageing towards the location and visibility of the mental foramen were determined. Most of the mental foramina were found to be located inferior to the apex of the second premolar. Non-visibility of the foramen was greatly increased in patients aged 50 years and above (Pearson Chi-square; </span><font face="Times New Roman"><em><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Calibri-Italic; mso-bidi-font-family: Arial">p </span></em><em><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Symbol-PSA; mso-bidi-font-family: Arial">= </span></em></font><em><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Calibri; mso-bidi-font-family: Arial">0.00). </span></em><em><span style="FONT-STYLE: normal; FONT-FAMILY: Calibri; mso-bidi-font-family: Arial; mso-bidi-font-style: italic">This finding may provide a guide to dental surgeries in Malay patients of different age groups.</span></em></font><em style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal"><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; FONT-SIZE: 9pt"><o:p></o:p></span></em></p>
