Table 3 Comparison of average distance of dAnt and dInf between prognathism and retrognathism (mm)

From: Three-dimensional analysis of the anterior loop of the inferior alveolar nerve in relation to the growth pattern of the mandibular functional subunit

  Mean ± SD Minimum Maximum p value
dAnt
 Prognathism 3.34 ± 1.59 0.51 7.12 < 0.001
 Retrognathism 1.00 ± 0.97 0 2.89
dInf
 Prognathism 6.81 ± 1.33 3.89 10.38 < 0.001
 Retrognathism 5.56 ± 1.34 2.87 8.68
  1. dPog distance from the pogonion to the Mcnamara plane, dAnt distance from the most anterior point of the inferior alveolar nerve from the MF_V. If there is no anterior curvature, dAnt is defined as “0”, dInf distance from the most inferior point of inferior alveolar nerve from MF_H
