Nasopalatine cyst which is seen arising from tissues in the incisive canal or nests in the papilla palatine and present either on the palate or on the nasal floor.
Nasopalatine duct cysts are the most corm-non nonodontogenic developmental cysts originating in the incisive canal of the maxillae.(1) These cysts were once formally classified as and called fissural cysts.
The mandibular incisive canal (MIC) is an anterior extension of the mandibular canal from the mental foramen, which contains a neurovascular bundle (Mardinger et al., 2000; Romanos et al, 2012).
After this classification, all the radiographs were analyzed in order to find which of them had at least one visible mandibular incisive canal. All MIC found in the radiographs were delimited in red (Fig.
Incisive canal width, measured in 3 distinct points (proximal, intermediate and distal, Fig, 1C--yellow line);

Anatomical literature has described the interforaminal region of the mandible as possessing a mental nerve with a path that creates an anterior loop (AL) before entering the mental foramina and another division in this point (anterior to the anterior loop of the mental nerve) as mandible incisive canal (Beltran et al, 2011).
For the cross-sections, the anterior loop was determined by counting the number of sequential 1 mm slices displaying two round hypodense images (corresponding to the upper and lower segments of the mandibular canal, typically ending in an "8-like" shape anteriorly), from the anterior-most image of the mental foramen and start point of the incisive canal. The number of parasagittal cuts containing the ALL was counted and multiplied by 0.25, thus achieving the ALL measurement.

Then we measured the thickness of the hard palate of every sample at 6 and 9 mm dorsally from the incisive canal, in both paramedian regions (at 3 and 6 mm from the mid-palatal suture).
The orifices of bilateral nasopalatine canals can be seen clearly apical to the central incisor teeth--the incisive canals: one at the apex of the implant and the other at the apex of natural tooth 11.
