The mandibular canal is usually a single canal that begins with mandibular foramen on the medial surface of the ascending mandibular ramus. It transmits the inferior alveolar artery, vein, and the inferior alveolar nerve. The identification of the mandibular canal and its anatomic variations is of great importance in many branches of dentistry, especially in implant dentistry. Sometimes, there may be variations in the normal anatomic structures; one of the rarest among them is double mandibular canal. The clinician should be aware of such variations to avoid complications during the treatment. In the present case report, we have discussed about a case with double mandibular canal and the complications that can arise during the treatment.
