This study investigated guidelines for placement of monocortical screws in the mandible, particularly the mandibular canal. In this study of 35 patients, we used cone-beam computed tomography to determine the distance from the alveolar crest to the superior border of the mandibular canal (DMC) and the shortest distance from the buccal and lingual cortex to the mandibular canal (attaining distance) in the areas between premolars (premolar area), between the second premolar and first molar (middle area), and between the first and second molars (molar area). The DMC values for these areas were 16.55, 18.94, and 16.58 mm, respectively, and were similar in adults and adolescents. When the attaining distance was 8 mm, the heights on the buccal and lingual sides of the areas were 9 and 16.6 mm, 13.7 and 14.7 mm, and 15.3 and 12 mm, respectively. Risk of proximity to the mandibular canal should be considered at above heights or greater when an orthodontic anchorage device (OAD) 8 mm in length is placed. Careful attention is needed for placements on lingual side in adolescents. By reducing the OAD length to 6 mm, placement safety increases in all areas except the premolar area, especially on the buccal side.
