This is a Cone Beam computer scan of a patient’s lower jaw. The bright orange line is the mandibular nerve which provides feeling to your tongue and your lip. With a computer scan of the patient beforehand we can know where exactly the nerve is. We can also see the shape of the lower jaw so we know which angle to place the implant without causing any damage or complications.
