Background: A close anatomic relationship between the incisive canal and the roots of the central maxillary incisors should be kept in mind during dental-implant treatment in the anterior maxilla. The aim of the present study is to analyze incisive canal characteristics on computed tomography (CT) sections and to evaluate its relation to bone anterior to the canal with regard to dental implantation.
