The mandibular notch is clinically significant for surgical and reconstructive procedures, as it assists maxillofacial surgeons in their surgical approach and management within this region (Clauser et al., 1995; Mintz et al., 1998; Mohammad et al.).
The length of the mandibular notch was measured from the anterior surface of the head of the mandible to the posterior surface of the coronoid process (Fig.
Some measurements exhibited good sensibility for male mandibles using the MS as follows: the maximum mandibular length (78.12), the bicondylar breadth (78.12), the left mandibular notch breadth (84.37), and the left height of the mandibular body at the mental foramen (75.00).
On the other hand, mandibular notch breadth and depth reached lower concordance rates because these anatomical landmarks require more expert knowledge and training to be established.
