Mental artery

The mental artery (Latin: arteria mentalis) is a terminal branch of the inferior alveolar artery (a branch of the maxillary artery). The mental artery supplies the skin and muscles in the chin region. It separates from the inferior alveolar artery within the mandibular canal and emerges onto the face via the mental foramen. The mental artery anastomoses with the inferior labial and submental arteries.
